Mental patient kills partner
A 45-year-old man in treatment at a psychiatric hospital in Athens has killed his 51-year-old partner almost 10 years after murdering his wife, it emerged yesterday.
Police revealed that the man confessed to killing his partner to one of the doctors treating him at the hospital in Dafni, western Athens. The psychiatrist informed the police and officers went to the woman’s home in Peristeri, where they found that she had been stabbed to death, likely on Thursday.
The man, who was not named, told officers he killed the woman after she told him she wanted to break up. Police said he had been a patient at the hospital since killing his wife in a similar manner about a decade ago. A firefighter exits
