LEON, Spain--Spanish police arrested a mother and daughter suspected of shooting dead a ruling party politician in broad daylight Monday in apparent revenge after the younger woman lost her job.
Officials said the wife and daughter of a police inspector were arrested on suspicion of gunning down Isabel Carrasco, conservative leader of the provincial council in Leon, northern Spain.
The killing of Carrasco, 59, a longtime local leader of the governing Popular Party, shocked the Spanish political world and halted their European election campaigns.
