Two Georgians charged with beating bar owner to death


Two Georgian men, aged 33 and 38, faced a prosecutor in Sparta in the Peloponnese, on Wednesday on charges of murdering a 61-year-old bar-restaurant owner.

According to an announcement by the police, the alleged perpetrators were being rowdy at the bar, prompting the 61-year-old to throw them out.

The pair are then alleged to have returned to the bar and violently beaten the 61-year-old to death in a brawl that is alleged to have also involved four men and an Albanian women.

The bar owner was transferred to the nearest hospital where he died of his injuries a short while afterwards.

It was unclear exactly what role the other five people were alleged to have played and whether they are to face any charges.
