A 40-year-old Filipina died following a fight with her Gambian husband inside their flat in To Kwa Wan in Hong Kong on Wednesday, April 10.
The Gambian, 37, turned himself in to police on Wednesday evening and was arrested. He faces charges of murder, the South China Morning Post said.
Firefighters who forcibly opened the door to the flat found the Filipina’s lifeless body on a bed. They found wounds in her head. Police said she could have been dead 12 to 20 hours before being found.
Police said the man, who held a temporary identification document, had been in Hong Kong since 2012.
