A second suspect in connection to the Sliema double murder was arrested late Wednesday night. 

One News reported that the suspect tried to escape arrest and jumped between roofs to hide from police. 

Police confirmed that the man in question was hiding in a Gżira hotel. 

Avid art-collectors Christian Pandolfino and Ivor Maciejowski were killed in their home on Tuesday 18th August in a shocking four-minute operation.

Pandolfino was found in the doorway with four bullets in his chest, neck and head while Maciejowski on the upper floor with one bullet to the head.

CCTV footage seen by police captured three men entering the residence at the time of the crime, joined by another suspect who drove the stolen getaway car.

Daniel Muka, a 25-year-old Albanian with a known criminal record, was arrested as a prime suspect in the murder of the couple, in a dramatic raid in Floriana on Tuesday.

Times of Malta reported that Muka, who has been interrogated by police since his arrest, admitted to being part of a criminal gang but denied being he mastermind behind the crime.

Jason Caruana, a Maltese man who was held in police custody as a possible accomplice in hiding Muka, has been released yesterday.

A weapon suspected to be the murder weapon was also seized during the dramatic Floriana raid, and is undergoing forensic testing.

While early reports dismissed theft as a motive, gold items that could have been stolen during the murder means that the police are actively pursuing a robbery as the line of inquiry.

With two suspects arrested, two remain at large.

Daniel Muka is expected to be charged in court today.
