The Mixed Jury Court of Appeal in Athens upheld the life imprisonment sentence for Babis Anagnostopoulos who murdered his 19-year-old British wife, Caroline Crouch, in May 2021.
He was absent in the court.
His defense had argued that the sentence should be reduced due to mitigating circumstances. However, the prosecutor rejected this argument, characterizing the case as one of the most heinous crimes of the past decades.
