The Lyon prosecutor's office quickly confirmed that the murder suspect was the victim's husband. The latter had also been indicted for domestic violence. Placed under judicial control, he was to be tried for these facts next October.
The suspect's run did not last long. Actively researched, technical means made it possible to locate it on Wednesday in the town of Saint-Laurent-de-Mure. A large police force was deployed to proceed to his arrest. He was arrested around 5:30 p.m. while driving his car. The suspect was immediately taken into police custody.
