London: Police in London say the husband of Eva Rausing, one of Britain's richest women, has been arrested on suspicion of murder in the death of his wife, even though no cause of death has been established yet.
The body of 48-year-old Eva was found on Monday at the couple's London home. The Metropolitan Police say detectives are treating the death as "unexplained," and Hans Kristian Rausing has not been charged.
However, Detective Inspector Sharon Marman told a preliminary inquest Friday that "Mr. Rausing ... has been arrested on suspicion of her murder."
He is receiving medical treatment and has not been questioned.
It may take several weeks for a cause of death to be established.
The couple had a long history of drug use.
