A MAN has been arrested after a British woman was stabbed to death in Spain.
The Brit, 76, was found dead in Alicante, Costa Blanca this morning.
Police have arrested an 82-year-old Norwegian man, believed to be her partner.
A spokesman for the Civil Guard said: “We can confirm that today at 7.40am we were alerted to a possible domestic violence incident at a property in Orihuela Costa which resulted in the death of the victim.
“The wounds she had could correspond to an attack with a bladed weapon.
“The victim is a British woman aged 76 and the suspected killer, who is under arrest, is a Norwegian man aged 82.”
Detectives said there were no previous reports of any problems between the suspect and the victim.
It is not yet clear whether the man and woman were living permanently in Spain or were on holiday.
