A Greek pilot who initially claimed his wife had been killed by robbers during a dramatic home invasion has now confessed to her murder, say police.


Caroline Crouch, a 20-year-old British national who lived in Greece, was found dead in the couple's home in Glyka Nera, near Athens, on May 11.


The story has since captured headlines in both Greece and the UK, in part due to the brutal events that Crouch's husband Babis Anagnostopoulos initially recounted.


Anagnostopoulos, 33, told police three robbers had broken into the house and killed the family dog before torturing and killing Crouch in front of the couple's 11-month-old child.

He said the robbers had also tied him up and he was therefore unable to help his wife.
