Greek pilot who claimed his British wife was killed by intruders convicted of her murder

The murder of a Greek helicopter pilot trying to claim his British wife by attacking their Athens home with armed robbers has led to her conviction.

The court found 34-year old Babis Anagnostopoulos guilty in the Greek capital of killing 20-yearold Caroline Crouch. Their 11-month-old daughter was sleeping in the same house as her parents.

He claimed that she had been killed by a house invasion. Courts heard.

To add to his claim that the family was the victim in a break-in, the UK-trained pilot was also convicted of strangling their dog.

The sentencing hearing will take place sometime later today.

The defendant abandoned the home invasion scenario and claimed that Ms. Crouch had died after an altercation about child care.

Prosecutors claimed that he deliberately suffocated her when she was asleep.

Anagnostopoulos first told police that burglars entered the house at night and bound and gagged the couple in their bedroom.

He was seen at a memorial service near her family’s home on Alonissos, the Aegean Sea Islands of Alonissos. After hugging her mother, he was led away.
