Greek pilot who murdered British wife drops appeal for reduced sentence


The Greek pilot who killed his British wife Caroline Crouch has announced he will drop an appeal to overturn his life sentence, The Guardian has reported.

Babis Anagnostopoulos’ lawyer said the pilot had elected “for extremely serious reasons” to drop the appeal proceedings.

Anagnostopoulos, who claimed he killed his 19-year-old wife in the heat of the moment, had long argued his 27-year sentence should be reduced on account of mitigating circumstances.

Wednesday’s decision not only means he will have to serve his prison term to length, but quashes any prospect of parole.
