Teen arrested in blind father’s death

Police have arrested a 17-year-old in connection with the death of his blind father whose charred body was found following a fire at the home of a neighbour in Limassol.

The victim, 58, was found burnt to death on January 21, in the living room of the neighbour’s home at the Trachoni refugee estate, who was at work at the time.

The teenager, who was remanded in custody for six days, was arrested by the British bases (SBA) police after new evidence appeared to refute his initial claims.

SBA police spokesman Giorgos Kiteos appeared confident that the case would be fully resolved.

The suspect, who has neither confirmed nor denied his alleged involvement, is receiving psychological help.
