Pensioner pleads guilty to manslaughter in wife killing

Larnaca court

AN 80-year-old man pleaded guilty to manslaughter on Wednesday, after he killed his wife in her Pervolia home last month.

Asked by prosecutors if he admitted to the charge of manslaughter, Yiangos Katsaris replied “yes” but denied charges of illegally owning the firearm he used to shoot her.

The Larnaca court will sentence him on May 10.

Last month, Katsaris shot his 77-year-old estranged wife five times at her farmhouse in Pervolia in front of her domestic worker.

They had an argument over financial matters and Katsaris pulled out the firearm shooting her five times.

At the scene found the victim, Katsaris’ son who had taken the firearm off his father, and the domestic worker.
