A man, aged 47, has revealed to a close that he had strangled his wife, aged 49 years, and that he had hidden her corpse in his cellar.
Shocked, this knowledge has called the police.
The police then went to the home of the forty-something woman in Saint-Denis, Seine-Saint-Denis, and have discovered, in the cellar, the lifeless body of his wife.
The suspect was arrested Sunday and has been placed in police custody.
For the moment, we do not know the reasons for his gesture.
