Korydallos man suspected of killing his sister, her husband

Police were on Tuesday seeking a man believed to have shot and killed his sister and her husband at the apartment block where they lived in Korydallos, a suburb of Piraeus, following an argument over property ownership issues.

The woman, aged 57, and her 55-year-old husband were found dead in the stairwell of their apartment block by police who received several telephone calls from worried neighbors who heard shots fired in the morning.

The woman’s brother lived in a ground-floor apartment in the same block, neighbors told police who were still looking for him late on Tuesday night.

A search of the ground-floor apartment turned up a revolver which is thought to be the murder weapon.
