Police have arrested two people on suspicion of murder in the death of an 80-year-old British woman who was shot dead in Spain, sources say.

The victim’s body was discovered just after 6.30pm on Wednesday after police were called to the property in Elche, near Alicante.

Local reports said the unnamed woman was shot dead at least three times at her home in a housing development called Urbanizacion Torre Azul, between Elche and the nearby town of Torrellano.

Concerned neighbors are said to have called the police, who found her body after a plumber stopped by on an arranged visit and got no answer when he knocked on the front door.

The detainees were described as a man and woman who were believed to have been seen by the plumber leaving the murder victim’s mansion.

Neighbors have reportedly said the dead woman’s name was Monica and her last name has not yet been released.

One said: “She moved here with her husband more than 20 years ago but he died and she lived alone.”

Another described her as “nice” but said she’s a very reserved woman who keeps to herself.
