Following a fight between a couple that was living apart, the wife fell into a coma and was taken to AHEPA hospital, while her husband was later murdered in the hospital corridor.
All started at a bar in Ampelokipi, Thessaloniki, on Wednesday evening when the couple began quarreling. The 26-year-old husband might have hit his wife, who lost her balance and hit seriously on the head when she fell.
Later, her parents and ex-husband visited her at AHEPA Hospital and at about 15:30, the husband was found dead in the hospital corridor.
All happened so quickly that at first the doctors spoke of a sudden death. However, the coroner proved that the man had suffered multiple blows with a pointed object on the left side of his head.
