Man arrested after fire kills girlfriend
A Swiss man has been arrested in France after a former girlfriend died in a house fire in the Bernese town of Frutigen.
The 41 year old woman, identified as Daniela S worked in the commune’s town hall. Last week her house burnt to the ground – her body was found in the wreckage.
A 53 year old man, Robert S, has been arrested in France. He lives and works in the same town and locals say he had an on/off relationship with the woman.
One friend said she was putting pressure on him not to split permanently.
Investigations are continuing – but a police spokeswoman confirms they believe Daniela was murdered.
