Las Palmas apartment explosion was a murder
At first it looked like an accident when there was an explosion in an apartment in the San Roque district of Las Palmas on Friday morning. A 49-year-old woman was found dead inside. Her husband was taken to hospital with severe second and third degree burns to 50 per cent of his body. The investigation revealed that Maria Soledad A.R. was probably stabbed to death several times by her husband Ángel with a kitchen knife prior to the explosion which was caused by escaping gas. However, it is not yet clear whether she died of these injuries or whether she was still alive at the time of the explosion and died of its consequences.
The 64-year-old committed the crime after the two children had gone to school. Nothing is currently known about the motive. Due to his serious injuries, he is not yet fit for questioning. T he two had been married for 15 years. The Island Council called for a minute's silence against domestic violence at noon today.
