BRUSSELS – A 52-year-old woman from Grembergen was fatally injured on Monday as the result of domestic abuse.  The woman was brought to hospital, where she died as a result of her injuries.

The exact circumstances of the violence are unclear. “The official investigation is underway,” said spokesperson for the public prosecutor’s office Theo Byl.

It is still not clear what caused Katia V.’s death. The first reports indicate that the woman was beaten repeatedly. The authorities have not yet confirmed that the local police are questioning two suspects, presumably the women’s former and current boyfriends, a reliable source reports.

The public prosecution office in Dendermonde will release more information later in the day.
