The case was heard on April 25, 2024, with the court sentencing the 27-year-old man from Albania to life imprisonment, judging that the accused, without hesitation, grabbed a gun, pointed it at his partner and shot her in the head.

"I shot her during the fight"

The tangle of the heinous crime began to unfold at approximately 10:30 on the morning of Saturday, December 3, 2022 when the perpetrator appeared at the Municipal Theater Police Station and in a calm tone told the officers verbatim the following: "I want to surrender, I have used drugs and alcohol and during the fight with my girlfriend, I shot her."

Immediately police officers of the A.T. they went to the ground floor apartment that the couple shared in Kaminia and found the body of the 19-year-old lying on the sofa in the living room.

"I hid the gun under the sofa"

During his confession, the woman killer claimed that he was under the influence of alcohol and drugs and expressed remorse.

"This woman is my whole life. I didn't mean to kill her. I studied from work during 6.00–6.30 in the morning. I work in the shop... (...) I was drunk, I had drunk a lot of alcohol and I had taken cocaine. I had done 2 grams that night. I was getting one line every 20 minutes. I had also had 10 or 12 drinks. I had drunk vodka and many shots of yellow tequila. I drank from 1.00 to 7.00 instead. (…) I arrived home at 7.00. She had studied and was drinking in another shop. He came home at 8.00 to 8.30. Suddenly, a conversation opens up for me about a story I had uploaded on Instagram. He generally made me jealous about girls. At that time she got a message on Instagram and deleted it. I asked her what she turned off and she said "my dick, the one I had sex with" and began to sarcastically describe what they were doing. (…) I told her to "stop" because she knew that this bothers me. I told her that if she had done that she should get up and leave. Then everything went black. I don't remember how I did this. I was shouting at her "stop, stop telling me, leave the house". I had hidden the pistol on the floor, under the sofa. The pistol was always hidden there. I shot her without realizing it. Then sitting down I threw the pistol with my right hand to the floor below. I have a memory gap for many things, I was hazy and confused. Everything was black," he said, among other things.

"The decision was a one-way street"

For the case, the lawyer of the father of the unfortunate girl, Mr. Ioannis Glykas, was posted on, stating that the family is satisfied with the court's decision.

"On 25/4/2024, the case of homicide against B.K. was tried before the Piraeus Mixed Jury Court. which took place in Piraeus on 3/12/2022. The court sentenced the accused TQ partner of the unfortunate girl to life imprisonment. The defendant, after an argument with his partner, took her life with the use of a pistol, shooting, in full consciousness, and without hesitation. As a witness in support of the charge, my client and the father of the victim feels satisfied with this decision of the court, without, however, reversing the tragic event. From the first moment the family of the unfortunate girl accepted and embraced the accused and in return he returned it to them by taking her life. Given the case file and the defendant's actions in general, the court issued a fair decision, a decision which, in the opinion of the prosecution, was a one-way street," he noted.
