The French Police on Sunday August 18, arrested a man in Haute-Savoie after his wife’s body was discovered in a suitcase in the boot of his car.
The couple’s two young children aged 6 and 7, sat in the back seat of the car at the time of the arrest and they were reportedly unhurt.
The murder suspect detained at Doussard in the eastern Haute Savoie region, was arrested following a tip-off that came while on the journey from Italy to France where they lived.
The Parisien Daily reported that a murder enquiry has been launched.
The public prosecutor of Annecy did not wish to comment on this case at this stage when contacted by AFP.
