The 45-year-old was under strong suspicion of having killed the man with a kitchen knife. The crime is said to have occurred during an argument in the suspect’s apartment. The local was arrested. During questioning on Tuesday afternoon, he initially refused to make a statement.
Motive remains unclear
The motive of the suspect, who was apparently under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, remained unclear for the time being, said a spokesman for the State Criminal Police Office. The 45-year-old is scheduled to be questioned again on Wednesday. A report will also be sent to the public prosecutor. The accused was initially in the police detention center in Innsbruck.
An autopsy confirmed death from a stab wound or a knife attack on the neck, it said. No results were yet available regarding the influence of intoxicants. Here we had to wait for a toxicological examination.
