Life sen­tence.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A 27-year-old woman was handed a life sen­tence yes­ter­day for mur­der­ing the 35-year-old es­tranged wife of her part­ner in Koropi, eastern of Athens, last Au­gust. The mur­der took place in front of the vic­tim’s two chil­dren. The younger woman’s lawyer ar­gued that it was a crime of pas­sion but the court de­cided that she had gone to her vic­tim’s house armed with a knife and with the in­ten­tion of killing her. The case file has been sent to the Athens Pros­e­cu­tor’s Of­fice so that an in­ves­ti­ga­tion can be held into whether the vic­tim’s 41-year-old es­tranged hus­band com­mit­ted per­jury dur­ing the trial.
