Greek Prosecutor Will Decide Custody of Murdered Mom’s Baby

ATHENS – A one-year-old girl left without parents after her father faces charges of killing his wife will have custody decided by the Athens Prosecutor for Minors, awarded either to the woman's parents or her father's parents.

Caroline Crouch, 20, was suffocated to death in her home by her husband, said police, apparently because she was going to leave him and take her daughter. She was British-Filipino and her parents live on the island of Alonissos.

Babis Anagnostopoulos, a 33-year-old helicopter pilot, confessed after being confronted with technological evidence disputing his tale that she was killed in a home invasion by three men while he was allegedly tied up.

Social services will be investigating the living conditions in both homes and interviewing the grandparents to help the prosecutor make a decision, the child for now in the custody of Anagnostopoulos’ parents, said Kathinerini.

He has been charged with premeditated murder, as well as of animal abuse for killing the family dog in his attempt to convince police that Crouch was murdered during a violent burglary, which set off a national manhunt for the killers.
