Three brothers from Limassol, aged 28, 19 and 16, were remanded for eight days on Thursday in connection with the murder of Christos Mihail on Monday.
Two of them, the 28-year-old and the 19-year-old, reportedly admitted committing the offence, while the minor said he was not involved.
The court convened behind closed doors because of the minor’s age.
44-year-old Mihail was found dead in his car with bullet wounds to the chest on Monday afternoon in a field in Ayios Silas in Limassol.
He had been arrested in 2017 in possession of 350 grammes of cocaine.
At the time, he tried to flee, hitting two police cars in the process. Officers had to fire warning shots to detain him.
