Spouse killer Tremithousas: "He didn't tell his wife he was going to kill her"
The psychiatrist told the court that Hunter revealed to her that he had not told his wife he was going to kill her
With the testimony of Dr. Katerinas Stylianidou, Psychiatrist at the General Hospital of Paphos, the legal proceedings continued before the Permanent Criminal Court that meets in Paphos for the case of the death of a woman in Tremithousa, with her 74-year-old husband, David Hunter, accused.
According to the BBC, the psychiatrist told the court that Hunter revealed to her that he had not told his wife he would kill her if she changed her mind.
After a heated exchange of views, the defense asked Ms. Stylianidou if she explained to him that she can appear as a court witness later. He replied that he didn't feel he needed it at the time.
Speaking outside court, Hunter's lawyer Michael Pollack said: “(The psychiatrist) gave evidence to prove that he told her his wife asked him to end her life. That's what we've been saying for so long, that's actually – assisted suicide or a suicide pact where he said he was going to kill himself too. The fact remains that she asked him to end her life, David is going to testify in a month or so and we have a hearing date for that, and that's what he's going to say."
The next hearing was set for next Monday 24/4/23, when the next witness for the Republic, also a specialist psychiatrist, is expected to testify. Also, in addition to May 24, hearings were also given for May 8,9, 15, and May 2023, XNUMX.
