Greek Cops Deny Mother Accused of Killing Daughter Beaten in Jail

ATHENS – A 33-year-old woman charged with killing her 9-year-old daughter after a cat anaesthetic was detected in the girl’s blood was not assaulted while in detention, Greek police said.

An investigating magistrates assigned a new lawyer, Konstantinos Zardas, to represent Pispirigou after two other lawyers refused to do so, the paper said, the accused denying she killed her daughter.
