Additional Charge for Woman Accused of Murdering her 9-Year-Old Daughter

ATHENS – A public prosecutor on Tuesday added a charge of attempted murder to those already faced by 33-year-old Roula Pispirigou, who stands accused of killing her nine-year-old daughter Georgina. This is based on the prosecutor’s findings suggesting that Pispirigou, who has held on remand since April, had made more than one attempt to end her daughter’s life before Georgina finally died of a lethal dose of ketamine.

Pispirigou has been summoned to give additional testimony on this new charge to an examining magistrate and is to be transferred to the Evelpidon court complex from Korydallos prison on Wednesday morning.

The additional charge was based on events that occurred a few months before Georgina’s death, when the girl had once again been admitted to hospital without doctors being able to identify any specific ailment causing her condition and had then suffered a heart attack. According to the prosecutor, this incident was due to outside interference by the 33-year-old but did not have the lethal effect she intended because doctors at the hospital had quickly intervened and saved the child.
