WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Prosecutors in Poland say a man was charged with murder in the double homicide of a young female harpist and a security guard in the building of a philharmonic in western Poland.
The two victims were found dead Friday morning in separate areas of the building of the Lower Silesia Philharmonic in Jelenia Gora.
A spokeswoman for local prosecutors, Violetta Niziolek, said Monday a suspect, identified only as Michal M., has been questioned and was charged with murder. He has been put under arrest for three months, pending further investigation.
Niziolek said the harpist was strangled and the guard died of wounds to the head.
Authorities said the harpist, in her late 20s, had traveled from Warsaw to Jelenia Gora to perform in a concert.
