The Mossos d’Esquadra have arrested a 37-year-old man accused of killing his grandmother in Sant Gregori, Gerona.

As reported by the Catalan Police, the crime was perpetrated on Saint John’s Day, this past June 23, when the agents went to the victim’s home and found the body.

It was a call to the 112 emergency telephone number that alerted that a person had died at home, in the town of Girona.
