The lawyer announced his decision himself, shortly before the killer was taken to the investigator in order to apologize.
Charalambos (Babis) Anagnostopoulos apologizes today before the 12th regular investigator, with a basic defensive claim that he did not plan the murder of his 20-year-old wife, Caroline Krauts, in the early hours of May 11 in their maisonette in Glyka Nera.
“There was no motivation, intention or premeditation. It was a tragic event in extreme conditions that night “, the accused will claim, who, however, according to information, will ask for his apology time to be postponed to noon in order to be informed of all the results of the Police forensic laboratories regarding the digital evidence (cameras, cell phones and smartwatch worn by the victim) that “showed” that the killer of 20-year-old Caroline was himself.
The 32-year-old husband-killer, stating that he regrets, will not undo his pre-investigation confessions but will try to challenge some of the “digital fingerprints”, especially those who find that the memory card of the camera that was placed inside the maisonette in Glyka Nera was removed. before the crime.
Specifically, the memory card, according to the information in the case file, was removed at around 1.30 in the early hours of May 11, almost 2 hours and 41 minutes before Babis Anagnostopoulos proceeded with the murderous act against his wife and mother of their 11-month-old daughter.
Something that, according to the police and judicial authorities, which proceeded to prosecute for “intentional homicide in a calm state of mind”, shows a person without suspensions who had planned the crime.
To this end, and in order not to record his movements when he would “suffocate – block the outer openings of the airways” the life of 20-year-old Caroline had previously removed the memory card from the camera that was placed on one of the walls of the living room and threw her in the toilet.
However, the accused will claim – and this will be the core of his defense – that he removed the memory card and threw it in the toilet after finding out that Caroline was dead in order to “tie” the scenario of the so-called “robbery”. after murder “that he had directed and tried for 37 days to present it as plausible, misleading the authorities,” just so that 11-month-old Lydia would not be orphaned “, as he claims.
However, according to the information in the hands of the investigator regarding the recordings of the heart function from the smartwatch of the 20-year-old, her death occurred in the period from 4:05 to 4:11, when a sharp increase in heart rate was recorded. .
A few minutes earlier, at 3:58 a.m., Caroline's heartbeat indicated a sleeping person.
But the accused himself in his supplementary pre-investigation apology claimed that he woke up Caroline and then pressed her head on the pillow until she stopped rocking.
“Caroline was sleeping face down and the right side of her face was resting on the pillow. I lay down next to her trying to tell her that what she did to Lydia was very bad. She did not even want to hear me. Lydia and I were told to leave.
Then, as she was lying face down, I went over her, trying to make her listen to me. She was shaking to throw me over her, but the more she was shaking, the more I pushed her because all I wanted was for her to hear me. While we were in this situation, I pressed on her and she shook, the front of her face, that is, her mouth, nose and eyes stuck to the pillow.
I do not remember if at that moment I pressed her head with my hands, but I think I was pressing her head with the weight of my body. While I was pushing her, I told her 2-3 times: “You will not hit the little one again”. This must have lasted for about five minutes, until I realized that Caroline had stopped rocking. Then, in my panic, I tried to bring her to justice, but I saw that this was in vain “, Babis Anagnostopoulos said characteristically in the additional pre-investigation apology he gave at 03:00 in the early hours of June 18, before being taken to the Prosecutor's Office to execute the warrant arrest at his expense.
It is recalled that the indictment he faces includes two crimes (intentional homicide in a calm mental state and abuse of an animal in a calm mental state) and two misdemeanors (false accusation as he made other suspects of his actions and false testimony continuously).
