Man accused of beating wife's ‘ex-lover’ to death

A 54-year-old Greek man faced a prosecutor on Monday charged with the fatal beating of a 40-year-old foreign national on the Ionian island of Ithaki on Saturday.

The alleged perpetrator’s 42-year-old wife, who was present at the time of the beating, notified police after finding the 40-year-old dead in a hotel room on Sunday.

It appears that her husband attacked the 40-year-old because he believed that he and his wife had had an affair in the past.

Police have charged a 54-year-old local resident from the island of Ithaki with the murder of a 40-year-old man, originally from Great Britain, after the husband believed his wife was having an affair with the victim.

Police said the 54-year-old attacked the victim then caught a taxi back to a village north of the island where he lives. The husband is said to have been in a jealous rage, believing that his 42-year-old wife, with whom he has a seven-year-old child was in a long term relationship with the victim.

Reports claim the 40-year-old man, only arrived in Ithaca a few days ago and was found dead at the hotel room where he was staying. Other reports claim that the wife was in the hotel room when the attack occurred and she tried to save the man but was unable to keep him alive until the ambulance arrived.

Locals who knew the couple told Alpha TV that the couple had been having problems with their marriage for some time and the husband was enraged when his wife told him she was planning on leaving the island with their daughter.
