A 33-year-old Georgian man has been arrested and remanded in custody after reportedly confessing to the murder of a Greek single mother from the village of Dherynia two years ago.
The Famagusta district court yesterday remanded the man, said to be the woman’s ex husband, in police custody for eight days on suspicion of premeditated murder.
Christina Kaletzidou was found unconscious on her bed by firemen and police who were notified by worried neighbours after a fire had broken out at her flat.
State pathologist Eleni Antoniou, who had carried out the post mortem at the time had said that “there were no signs of foul play at the scene.”
But Famagusta CID are now treating this case as a premeditated murder inquiry and, according to state radio, the man has allegedly confessed to killing the mother of three.
Late on Thursday night, police issued an announcement confirming that “a 33-year-old has been brought in for questioning in connection with the ongoing premeditated murder investigation for the crime that took place on March 16, 2012 in the district of Famagusta.”
