A 31-year-old French mother of three was burned alive by her husband, who chased her down the street and shot her in the legs before dousing her in a flammable liquid and setting her alight, police said on Wednesday.
The grisly attack took place in broad daylight on Tuesday in the well-heeled Merignac neighbourhood, near Bordeaux airport, in the southwest.
The woman and the 44-year-old man were separated. Their children aged three, seven and 11 lived with their mother.
The man fired several shots at the woman as she fled down a street, hitting her in the legs.
After she collapsed, he set her alight, police said.
He was arrested half an hour after the murder in the neighbouring district of Pessac, armed with a pistol, a pellet gun and a cartridge belt, the Bordeaux prosecutor's office said.
He is suspected both of his wife's murder and of having started fire that damaged her home.
Local authorities have set up a counselling service for witnesses to the killing.
The couple's children were not at home at the time of the attack, the prosecutor's office said, adding that they were receiving trauma counselling.
"The couple went to meet the parents of the woman on the occasion for Eid at a nearby location on Saturday night. They left the children at their grandmother's house and returned home. The incident happened after that," said a senior police officer.
While married, the defendant and his divorcee agreed to deposit each a monthly amount in the said account to secure the future of their daughter.
