A woman arrested for killing her brother in Renaix

A 45 year old woman was arrested on Saturday afternoon, after her brother’s body was found in his house in Renaix at around 1am on Saturday morning. All the early evidence points to her brother having been killed, says the Audenarde Flanders Prosecutor’s office. An investigating judge visited the scene with a medical examiner.

“We are investigating the exact circumstances surrounding the death”, says the press magistrate for the Prosecutor’s office, Joren Bauwens. “According to the early evidence, it was pretty a violent death”. An autopsy will be performed on the body.

The victim’s sister called the emergency services herself early on Saturday morning. She was arrested on suspicion of murder at the scene on Saturday.

She will appear before the Council chamber on Tuesday.
