Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A 27-year-old woman and her 19-year-old part­ner were re­manded in cus­tody yes­ter­day af­ter de­fend­ing them­selves be­fore an in­ves­ti­gat­ing mag­is­trate in the western port city of Pa­tra in con­nec­tion with the al­leged abuse of their 7-month-old daugh­ter who was found with cuts, cig­a­rette burns and bruises on her body. The cou­ple claim that the in­juries were in­flicted by the girl’s brother, a tod­dler who is just two years older. The in­fant was be­ing treated at the Kara­man­daneio chil­dren’s hospi­tal in Pa­tra. The pair face lengthy prison terms if found guilty of child abuse, as doc­tors car­ing for the baby have al­legedly sub­mit­ted ev­i­dence of vi­o­lence that dates back sev­eral months.
