The woman is accused of murdering 46-year-old Nikos Menzos with intent and in a calm state of mind.
The victim’s brother was the first to testify on Monday, December 2nd, at the Mesolongi Circuit Court. He described the unfortunate teacher as a social and dear man in the area of Agrinio, but changed his behavior since he got married. The victim, as the witness testified, was in a very good financial situation as there were 100,000 euros when his accounts were opened.
“He did not just kill him, but burned him alive,” he said, among other things.
Immediately after, the teacher’s sister testified.
The trial will be continued on Thursday, December 5th.
It was Easter’s Thursday in 2011, around 11am when thick black smoke covered the Rupakia Agrinio area. A car had been burned in a field. When the fire went out, it was revealed that the driver and father of a child, Nikos Mentzos, were literally incinerated.
All he found was some tissues from his body, after which his bones had melted from the fiery hell. Police initially spoke of a suicide or an accident. Experts later discovered that his death was the result of criminal activity after the unfortunate man was tied up with a rope in the driver’s seat, which was seen by x-ray.
From the first moment, Mentzo’s relatives insisted it was a crime that was perfectly organized, leaving the perpetrators on the trail.
