Police detained Dorel Marcu, 21, after being alerted by Romanian police who were notified by his father before he could carry out a threat to kill his wife's 13-year-old sister as well, police said in a statement. Marcu told his father through an internet chat "that he had strangled his wife while he showed him the lifeless body of his partner via webcam," the statement said. "He also said that when the victim's 13-year-old sister returned home, she would 'suffer the same fate'," it added. The victim's sister arrived at the flat in the Madrid suburb of Torrejon de Ardoz where the murder took place on Monday shortly before police arrived to arrest Marcu. She was unharmed. Marcu's 19-year-old wife was five months pregnant and also a Romanian. Spanish media reported that the couple had got into a fight after the woman told Marcu that she wanted to break up and that the baby which she was carrying was not his. A police spokesman would not confirm the reports, saying only that all possible motives for the murder would be investigated.The woman is identified only as "VM". Her mother told reporters the couple (pictured, above) had been together for five years and "had discussions like all couples" and that her daughter was "very unhappy" in the relationship, but she didn't get involved.
