Mani murder suspects appear before magistrate in Kalamata

The two 18-year-olds accused of murdering two men in Mani last week during a deal over anabolic steroids that went wrong were facing a magistrate in Kalamata on Monday.

Relatives of the two victims, 26-year-old Constantinos Sgouros and 25-year-old Yiannis Kommatis, gathered outside the court to barrack the two teenagers as they arrived for questioning.

It appears that the murders were prompted by the failure of the two victims to procure some 800 euros’ worth of steroids that the two teenagers are alleged to have ordered, prompting an argument that led to the shootings.

Kommatis and Sgouros were both keen bodybuilders and photos showed that they had numerous tattoos, including swastikas and Russian mafia symbols.
