VI­ENNA — A man stran­gled and dis­mem­bered his wife, en­tombed her head in con­crete and then used the con­crete block as a weight to drown him­self in an Aus­trian lake, au­thor­i­ties said Tues­day. Po­lice of­fi­cial Got­tfried Mit­ter­lehner said the couple were a 72-year old man and his 71-year old wife from Ger­many but did not fur­ther iden­tify them. Of­fi­cials told re­porters the head was found in a block of con­crete in a bag at­tached to the man’s hand. The other hand also was weighed down. The corpse and the bag were re­cov­ered by po­lice divers from the wa­ters of Traun­see Mon­day.
