    A man was arrested by police on Monday in connection with the investigation into the murder of a 41-year-old Liège inhabitant found dead in Vertbois on April 17th this year. The man was interrogated by investigators and confessed.

The woman was found by a homeless man on April 17th at around 6:00am. The man called the police. The investigation targeted the sex trade and analysis of the victim’s mobile phone records (her phone had been stolen) enabled investigators to identify a suspect. The man was taken in for questioning on Monday and confessed to strangling her. He appeared before the investigating judge on Tuesday.
