A pen­sioner sus­pected of mur­der­ing a 40year-old mother of four near the town of Leoni­dio in the Pelo­pon­nese ear­lier this week was found dead yes­ter­day. Au­thor­i­ties said that he had drunk a bot­tle of poi­son.

The un­named 67-year-old, a re­tired con­struc­tion worker, is be­lieved to have killed the woman in a fit of jeal­ous rage and then com­mit­ted sui­cide not far from the Ar­ca­dia farm where he al­legedly shot his vic­tim. A shot­gun that may have been used to mur­der the woman, a live­stock breeder, was found next to his body.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice the man and his al­leged vic­tim had been lovers in the past.
