34-year-old Rolf Gremmel, who was charged with murdering his comrade over a woman in Burgas, was found hanged on a TV cable in the police arrest facility in the city Friday overnight.

Rolf Gremmel was arrested on accusations of murdering fellow German Henry Stenberg, who had been founded dead with 15 stab wounds on the Burgas beach last week.

Initial investigations had determined that Gremmel murdered his compatriot out of jealousy for a woman that both men lodged with in Burgas.

Bulgarian Justice Minister Diana Kovacheve ordered a probe in the aftermath of the suspect's suicide.

The list of objects permitted in Bulgarian prison cells and detention units is to be revised.
