Greek Mom Now Charged With Killing Her Three Young Daughters

ATHENS – A Greek woman charged with killing her 9-year-old daughter now faces charges of killing her other two daughters after prosecutors investigating the cases declared it was homicide.

Roula Pispirigou, from the western port city of Patras in western Greece, was accused of killing 3-year-old daughter Malena and 6-month-old Iris, as well as 9-year-old Georgina, in whose blood a cat anaesthetic was found.

The girl died in January after a long stay in a hospital while Malena died from what was declared liver failure in 2009 and Iris in 2021 from a suspected heart defect but prosecutors said she killed them.

The charges, said Kathimerini, were based on the findings of the new forensic report by coroners Nikos Karakoukis and Nikos Kalogrias, which showed that that Melena and Iris both died of asphyxiation instead of natural causes.

It also pointed to testimonies of nurses and doctors present during the hospitalizations of the two girls and who said Pispirigou was the only one present at the time of their death as was the case when Georgina died.

Pispirigou has denied any wrongdoing and there was no indication of what a motive might have been while her lawyer said it was concidence and medical errors in all three cases.
