Woman held for killing fourth husband in car park amid suspected disabilty fraud

A supposedly disabled and recently married murder suspect is being nicknamed 'The Black Widow' by Spanish media after being caught allegedly carrying out the macabre, yet bizarre murder of her new, fourth husband in an Alicante beachside car park this week.

An off-duty police officer spotted two people wearing gloves stabbing a man with a screwdriver. By the time she reached the scene to stop the attack it was too late to save the 69-year-old man.

The supposed assailants are the dead man's wheelchair-bound wife (45) and her male "carer" (58). Investigators are perplexed as to motive and why the woman was able to stand away from the wheelchair to carry out the attack.
