 A 21-year-old Chinese woman was murdered by her boyfriend, a 30-year-old Mexican man on morning of November 24 in a hostel near the Florence station.  After an argument, the man strangled her, then went down to reception and confessed the crime. After verifying the truth of his statement by a visit to the room, a member of the staff called the police, who are currently carrying out investigations in the case.
