A 20-year-old woman murdered in front of her 11-month-old child during a home robbery in the suburb of Glyka Nera on the outskirts of Athens on Tuesday died of asphyxiation, a medical examiner’s autopsy has determined.

According to the report, the robbers shoved pieces of cloth in the victim’s mouth before pushing their hands against her nose and lips, which caused her to suffocate.
