AN alleged murderer has been arrested after his roommate’s body was found in a pool of blood in Marbella yesterday morning.
The eastern European was picked up in a bar in San Pedro de Alcantara after police were called to the scene of a stabbing ‘between homeless people’ on Calle Santa Maria.
The unnamed man is believed to have stabbed the 45-year-old Latvian victim in an abandoned building they shared with several other homeless people.
According to reports, the victim had asked the alleged killer to stop making noise as everyone wanted to sleep after a night of heavy drinking.
The alleged killer then went to the kitchen, grabbed a knife and stabbed his pal as he lay in his mattress.
He fled on foot but was soon found sitting in a bar by Policia Nacional agents.
Paramedics could do nothing to save the victim after the blade cut deep into his heart.
Police later found a large knife covered in blood in some nearby bushes which they believe tests will show is the murder weapon.
