A 28-year-old Albanian man was arrested this week on homicide charges related to the murder of a 35-year-old local man in the village of Kouloura in Imathia prefecture, northern Greece, police announced on Friday.

The victim was reported missing earlier this week, while his body was found dumped in a ditch not far from his residence on Friday morning.

The 28-year-old reportedly confessed to the murder, claiming that he hit the victim with a piece of wood and a sharp object during an argument over personal differences. According to his statement, the victim drove him with his truck to a rural region, where the homicide occurred. He claimed that in an effort to leave no evidence behind he set the vehicle ablaze.
