Triple murder suspect referred to Criminal Court

Christakis Thoma

A 31-year-old held for stabbing to death two brothers and another man in Limassol last month has been referred to trial before the Criminal Court.

The first hearing is scheduled for January 12.

Christakis Thoma is accused of killing brothers Parashos and Constantinos Ntorzi, 19 and 21, and Emilios Miltiadous, 24, during a frenzied knife attack on the night of November 24.

Thoma fled the scene but was arrested two days later.

The killings followed a heated argument between the four men at a tavern owned by the suspect’s father at Platia Iroon.

Police said the dispute was over a girl from Larnaca that Thoma was in a relationship with.

Thoma’s father was also arrested after eyewitnesses placed him at the scene of one of the stabbings. He is currently held at Athalassa psychiatric hospital.

The suspect, according to police, had chased the victims and killed them one by one in a side road off Anexartisias Street.

After his arrest, Thoma told police he acted out of blind rage.
