A 40-year-old woman was found murdered last night in a house in Gusum, about two hours south of Stockholm.

The woman was found dead shortly after 11 pm on Thursday. Police say the wounds on the woman's body suggest she was murdered.

“We don't want to say in whose apartment we found the woman dead or how she died,” said police spokesman Tommy Håkansson to TT.

A 45-year-old man is in police custody suspected for causing her death. No other information was given.

Police are still investigating the apartment for further clues and are interviewing people to try to find out what exactly happened.
