Mur­der con­vic­tions.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A crim­i­nal court in Kas­to­ria, north­ern Greece, yes­ter­day handed life sen­tences for mur­der to the mother and step­fa­ther of 23-year-old Costis Poly­zos, whose body was found buried in a field in Septem­ber 2011. The court heard that the step­fa­ther killed the vic­tim dur­ing a row in the fam­ily home and sub­se­quently buried the body in a field aided by his wife. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice re­ports, the pair had taken out a loan in the vic­tim’s name, a move which sub­se­quently led to a se­ries of fam­ily dis­putes. Al­though the pair con­sis­tently de­nied the charges, and their lawyers in­sisted that there was no ev­i­dence link­ing them to the 23-year-old’s mur­der, the judges adopted the rec­om­men­da­tion of the pros­e­cu­tor for their con­vic­tion.
