Murder Suspect Pispirigou to Testify Regarding Deaths of Younger Daughters

December 21, 2022

ATHENS – Murder suspect Roula Pispirigou, aged 34, who has been jailed on remand on a charge of murdering her eldest daughter, nine-year-old Georgina, was summoned to testify by an examining magistrate investigating the deaths of her two younger daughters, Malena and Irida, on Wednesday.

Authorities believe the 34-year-old took the lives of all three children and she is scheduled to stand trial before a Mixed Jury Court on January 9 for the murder and also the attempted murder of Georgina, the last of the three children to die.

Pispirigou on Tuesday submitted another request for expert witnesses to be brought in, saying that justice erred in accepting the findings of coroners Nikos Karakoukis and Nikos Kalogrias, who attributed the deaths of the two younger children to external factors, unrelated to any pre-existing pathology. Her lawyer Alexis Kougias said that three medical examiners submitted testimony to the examining magistrate, refuting the findings of Karakoukis and Kalogrias.

The 34-year-old has also been charged with the murder of Malena, aged three, on April 13, 2019 and of six-month-old Irida, on March 21, 2021.
