He personally appeared at the police department, department of West Attica, and, as follows from the report, confessed to his act. He also handed over 32mm weapons and 3 rounds to the police.

“I had no intention of killing her. We had years of financial friction. Yesterday I went to her house to borrow money or something in gold.” She insulted me … My mind was clouded … and I killed her. ” , – he stated this, among other things, in his confession. According to information from zougla.gr, the man allegedly even stated to the police that he had chronic “showdowns” with his ex-wife. He noted that this situation led to the fact that he was in a very bad financial situation.

A case was brought against him on charges of murder and violation of the law on weapons. The man was taken to the competent prosecutor’s office.
