Murdered Mom’s Parents in Greece Get Granddaughter’s Custody

ATHENS – The British-Filipino parents of Caroline Crouch, whose Greek husband confessed to killing her were given temporary custody of a 1-year-old granddaughter, Lydia by a Juvenile Prosecutor's office.

They live on the island of Alonissos, where the family grew up and will take care of her until a court decides on a permanent arrangement as the parents of Babis Anagnostopoulos, who police said admitted the murder, also want custody.

In the meantime, his parents will have visitation rights as well as the daughter was left without both parents after Anagnostopoulos said he killed her in a fit of rage because she was going to leave him and take Lydia with her.

The prosecutor also removed parental responsibility Anagnostopoulos.

Crouch's mother has asked for exclusive custody of her granddaughter, while the family of the accused have reportedly requested joint custody of the child and proposed that she lives half the time in Athens and the other half on Alonissos, said Kathimerini.

Anagnostopoulos has been charged with two felonies, included premeditated murder. He called police at dawn on May 11, reporting that three home invaders killed his wife after tying him up and demanding money. 

She was suffocated to death, technological evidence from his smart watch showing he was walking around the house at the time he said he was restrained and her cell phone indicating a near 6-minute death struggle.
