Jimmy Breaks, a former wrestling champion known for his inverted arm lock, has been arrested after authorities in England found his ex-partner dead.

The Daily Mail reported Donna Crowley, 47, was found beaten to death in her home on the island of Gran Canaria off the coast of Spain. Authorities said she was assaulted — they believe she suffered several blows — in her home and died the next day. Authorities further told the Daily Mail that when police arrived, they found Crowley bleeding in her bathtub and the suspect watching television.

Breaks was arrested and is being investigated on suspicion of murder and suspicion of an offense of undermining the authority of the law because he allegedly resisted while being taken into custody. Breaks is reportedly bring held in prison without bail.

Breaks held several championships during a long professional career in England, mostly in the lightweight and welterweight divisions. The Daily  Mail quoted one wresting website as saying Breaks appeared on a British wrestling show for more years and more times than any other wrestler except one — the late Mick McManus, a legend in English wrestling.

Breaks went by the nickname “Cry Baby” because of his penchant for complaining to referees.
