A MAN has been arrested in Mallorca for the murder of his uncle.
The 59-year-old Spaniard called police in the early hours of this morning to confess that he had killed his 79-year-old uncle by suffocating him with a pillow.
When officers arrived at the family home in Inca, the man was waiting outside of his front door.
Investigators say he then led police to a bedroom and the victim was found unresponsive on the bed.
The man has been charged with murder and remains in police custody.
In recent months, police have investigated a string of murders on the island.
Officers discovered the bodies inside of a car parked next to a petrol station in Peguera.
The man claimed his wife had been seriously injured and died, providing details of where the ‘accident’ supposedly happened.
At the scene, Policia Nacional officers followed a trail of blood to nearby woods, finding the woman’s lifeless body covered with branches.
She had been stabbed to death with a screwdriver.
The suspect is connected to the disappearance of three other men.
