Man 'Cut Up Brother And Put Him In Freezer'
A man has admitted killing his younger brother with a hammer, cutting up the body and putting the remains in a freezer, police have said.
The 39-year-old Spanish suspect said he carried out the gruesome attack after a turbulent year living in the same home as his sibling, officers added.
He was detained after he voluntarily turned up at a police station to confess, according to a police statement.
Officers said they went with him to the home where they found "two freezers with bone and organic remains as well as part of the body".
Police said the man, whose name was not released but is from Palma in Majorca on the Balearic Islands, could not recall how many days ago the crime took place.
The suspect apparently told police his 32-year-old brother had moved in with him about a year ago, leading to heated arguments.
"In one of those arguments in the home, the brother took a hammer and tried to assault the detainee, who snatched the weapon and aimed several mortal blows at the (victim's) head," police said.
