Georgian Man Suspected of Killing Young Mother to Appear Before Magistrate

ATHENS — An Athens examining magistrate has issued an arrest warrant for multiple robberies against a 36-year-old Georgian national who is also being investigated by authorities for possible involvement in the robbery in the Athens suburb of Glyka Nera, in which a young mother of British descent was murdered.

The suspect was arrested at the Evros border on Friday, when he attempted to leave the country using a fake passport. The suspect was found to be a match for biological forensic evidence collected at the scene of a previous violent home invasion on March 7 in Pikermi.

The magistrate on Monday issued a warrant against him for robberies and for causing bodily harm. The 36-year-old will now be brought to the court so that, once the warrant against him is executed, he can appear before the magistrate to testify.

Based on evidence found by the police, the suspect that attempted to leave Greece via the Kipi border crossing in Evros had taken part in a robbery targeting an elderly couple and their domestic worker in Pikermi on March 7, along with another four individuals. The perpetrators had tied up and beaten the three residents of the house and police have biological evidence from the 36-year-old found at the scene of the crime.
