A LOCAL police officer accused of killing a woman has committed suicide in prison.

Miguel Folgoso Olmos, from Granada, was accused of beating to death his ex-wife’s lawyer, Rosa Coba, with his truncheon last September.

Olmos, who hung himself at Castellon’s  Albocasser prison last Sunday, was filmed on CCTV attacking Coba in her garage.

The police officer is said to have been angry with the result of his divorce in which Coba represented his former partner.

The footage shows the lawyer being hit at least 40 times on the head and neck.
