Caroline Crouch’s murderous husband WAS wanted by prisoners to kill him while he was in jail for Brit’s murder
CAROLINE Crouch’s attorney was assaulted in prison by an inmate who wanted to kill him, his attorney said.
Babis Anagnostopoulos, 34, was jailed for life for strangling his 20-year-old wife to death at their home in Greece last May.
Caroline was horribly tortured and suffocated with a pillow in front of her 11-month-old daughter Lydia as she slept at the couple’s home in an posh Athens suburb.
Anagnostopoulos said the pair became the target of a robbery, which would buy time to create a fictional crime scene and give media interviews, before police realized the lie. his.
His lawyer Alexandros Papaioannidis has now told The Sun Online that Anagnostopoulos was attacked in an Athens prison.
In one incident, narrowly stopped by a prison guard, Papaioannidis said an inmate openly admitted he wanted to kill his wife’s killer.
“Reports that he said ‘I want to kill him. I come from another prison. Papaioannidis said.
Papaioannidis said Anagnostopoulos was transferred from Athens’ Korydallos prison to Malandrinos prison in central Greece.
The lawyer said petitions asking the pilot to stay in the extremely safe facility of the Greek capital had been denied.
“He was very worried when the new prison held about 900 tough criminals and it was very, very tough.”
Caroline’s heartbroken father recently spoke out for the first time after Anagnostopoulos was jailed.
David Crouch that it is a small consolation that Anagnostopoulos “will be held with the murderers of his kind, but also the perverts of all” in a hellish prison.
News of Anagnostopoulos’ prison move comes days after he appealed the life sentence he was given in May and a new hearing could take place next year.
Papaioannidis said: “We have appealed the sentence in the hope that we can reduce the life sentence.
Anagnostopoulos will appeal on the grounds that the court dismissed his allegation that he acted in a “moment of temper” after sailing with Crouch for their daughter.
Announcing the verdict in May, the judges unanimously rejected that argument, agreeing with the prosecutor’s theory that he was “conscious of his actions throughout”.
According to his lawyer, the pilot will also appeal the marriage counselor’s testimony that she is not “qualified” to testify.
He will also ask for a reduction in his sentence and needs to take into account the mitigating circumstances – like his good behavior in prison – that need to be taken into account.
Anagnostopoulos claims his family was targeted by an Albanian gang and even hung the family dog on a railing in an attempt to stage a fictional crime scene.
But his morbid cover-up was rumored after police obtained a pile of digital evidence that interrupted his timeline of the alleged robbery.
They discovered that Anagnostopoulos was in fact active during the time he was supposed to be tied up and that Caroline’s heart had stopped beating a few hours before he claimed the gang had broken in.
