Greek Prosecutor Executes Arrest Warrant for Self-Confessed Wife Murderer

ATHENS — An arrest warrant for the 33-year-old husband who confessed the murder of his wife was on Friday executed by a prosecutor for the execution of judgements in Athens.

Pilot Babis Anagnostopoulos, 33, is scheduled to appear before an investigator, where he is expected to request an extension to prepare his defense, before being detained as a flight risk.

Earlier on Friday Anagnostopoulos was charged with the murder of Caroline Crouch, his 20-year-old wife of British descent and mother of their 11-month infant, after appearing before a public prosecutor in Athens.

Vassilis Spirou, the pilot's lawyer, told reporters that his client "said he is shattered by the fact of Caroline's death." Spirou added that his client "feels relieved" after confessing his crime.

He will also face a criminal charge of animal abuse for the killing of the family's dog and lesser charges for giving false testimony to the police and casting suspicion on others for his actions.

Anagnostopoulos had originally told police that his wife was murdered by gun-wielding assailants who had broken into the couple's home. Late on Thursday, he man confessed to killing his 20-year-old wife in their house in Glyka Nera after police confronted him with irrefutable evidence and of staging a robbery/murder.
