Spanish Police have arrested a man after he allegedly strangled his former lover and her three year old daughter to death at their home in Spain.
Monica Linde and her daughter, were murdered by Ruben Dario at their apartment in Esplugues de Llobregat, near Barcelona’s El Prat airport.
Monica, 28, is understood to be a staff at easyJet at El Prat airport, where she started working since last August after spending time living in London where she was employed at Zara Home and also had a job as a barmaid.
Detectives confirmed the suspect, who has been named locally as Ruben Dario, 27, will be appearing in court today (Wednesday, January 7).
The spaniard, thought to have met his partner while she lived in the UK, was taken into police custody after receiving hospital treatment for wounds which are thought to be self-inflicted.
Local reports claim Monica and Ruben Dario were in the process of separating despite the fact they were still living under the same roof.
Police made the arrest after being called to the double murder scene early yesterday morning.
