The trial against the 74-year-old Briton accused of the murder of his wife in Tremithousa last December, is expected to continue before court on Tuesday.

The 74-year-old is currently facing the charge of premeditated murder, but there is a possibility that he will change his answer from non-admission to admission to the murder, on the condition that he be charged with manslaughter rather than premeditated murder.

The two sides are in agreement over the facts of the case, which allows the prosecuting party to vary the indictment and both sides have agreed to the amendment of the indictment.

As mentioned by the defense counsel, the accused is now expected to change his answer by admitting the charge of homicide.

According to the case history in December 2021, the 75-year-old British man caused the death of his wife who was in the final stages of cancer, because he could not bear to watch her suffer and, claiming later, that she herself had asked him to relieve her of the horrible pain.
