A woman in Ashdod has been found dead at an apartment in the southern city of Ashdod in a suspected murder.

Both paramedics and police were called to the scene and declared the woman dead.

Police say a suspect has been arrested, who some Hebrew media reports identify as the woman’s ex-husband. The Kan public broadcaster says he was detained after phoning police to say he choked his former wife to death.
