A British traveler had been killed on a Greek island by the husband of a woman he was supposedly having an affair with.
Iain Armstrong, 40, was discovered in a resort on the island of Ithaca on Sunday with critical skull injuries after it appeared he was battered to death by a man Kostas Skarmeas, as reported.
Skarmeas, 54, a grocery store boss, has been charged and arrested for an evil attack.
His 42-year-old wife believed to be British with a South African passport, was also caught after leaving the man with cruel wounds in a resort.
The wife described police she conversed with Mr. Armstrong after the assault but he asserted he did not require medicinal treatment.
When she attended to meet him the following day, November 17, she discovered him dead.
“The husband is supposed to have been in a jealous temper, thinking that his 42-year-old wife, with whom he has an eight-year-old daughter, was in a long-term connection with the victim.
Skarmeas reportedly notified police that he was full of regret and had only punched Mr. Armstrong thrice while in the brutal dispute.
The incident and case has now been transferred to prosecutors on the nearby island of Kefalonia.
Local reports recommended Skarmeas was depressed that his wife intended to leave Ithaca with their girl, eight.
In a report, local police said: “The investigation was concluded quickly, following a precise and thorough investigation by the Argostoli Security Department in collaboration with the Ithaca Police Department, after a deadly injury to a 40-year-old in Ithaca.
“The 40-year-old tourist was found dead in a resort room in Ithaca.
A representative for the UK Foreign Office stated: “We are supporting and assisting the family, relatives of a British man after his death in Ithaca and are in touch with the Greek authorities.
