The parents of a Brit woman murdered by her husband in Greece, have won full custody of their granddaughter.

Caroline Crouch, 20, was murdered at the hands of her husband Babis Anagnostopoulos, 33, on May 11, in front of their baby daughter.

The killer then spun a web of lies and claimed that robbers had broken into their home in the suburbs of Athens, killing his wife and their dog in the process.

Anagnostopoulos was arrested a month later when his lie was uncovered and he confessed to his crime, and will likely receive a life sentence in prison.

Now their one-year-old daughter has formally been put into the care of Caroline’s parents, Susan and David, who live on the island of Alonnisos, Greek City Times reports.

The murderer’s parents, Constantinos and Georgia Anagnostopoulos, looked after the toddler following her mother’s death and had wanted to keep her, but Mr and Mrs Crouch launched a legal bid for sole custody.

Her paternal grandparents will still have right of access and are currently staying at their holiday home on the Aegean island to be close to her.

David Crouch told the Daily Mail: “Susan and I have been granted full custody with the other grandparents allowed visitation rights five times a month.

“The child is fine, and like her mother, grows more beautiful by the day.

“She is now walking confidently, eats heartily and charms everyone she comes into contact with.

“It is now our intention to baptise her into the Greek Orthodox Church, as was Caroline, in the little chapel close to the cemetery where Caroline was laid to rest.”
