A BRITISH man has been jailed after admitting to the murder of his wife at their home in the Costa de la Calma area of Mallorca.
The accused, Warren L., 50 (pictured left), rang the 112 emergency hotline number at 03.20 yesterday (Sunday) morning saying he had killed Lisa Jane L., 49.
During the call, he told police he was 'very sorry'.
Police and paramedics who attended the scene in one of the coastal enclaves of the town of Calvià attempted to revive an unconscious Lisa, who was lying on the sofa, to no avail.
The victim was alive but in cardiac arrest when they arrived, although despite every effort, ambulance staff were unable to get a pulse or start her breathing again.
She had been strangled with the wire of a mobile phone charger during a heated argument, said to have broken out when both of them were drunk.
The British couple had lived in Mallorca for 10 years at their home in the Siesta Apartments, number 155 of the C/ Bella Vista (pictured right), and no records of previous domestic violence or other crimes committed by the killer, have been registered in that time.
It is thought that the victim split her time between Mallorca and the London area, and that the couple have a grown-up daughter who lives in the UK.
Warren has been held in a Guardia Civil station cell in Son Rapinya, Palma de Mallorca, and is likely to be remanded in custody today when he appears before a judge.
