Corinth: Man attempts to "justify" raping and severely beating his ex-wife over the baptism of their child


A 28-year-old woman in Almyri town in Corinth experienced horror at the hands of her 33-year-old ex-husband who beat and raped her.

According to Proto Thema, it all happened in the early hours of last Wednesday when the 33-year-old drove his car to his ex-wife 's house.

There the perpetrator forced the 28-year-old into the car and they headed towards the Isthmus area. All the way he beat her savagely, punching her in the head and body, with the 28-year-old unable to react as the 33-year-old had locked the doors.

"He grabbed me by the head and was hitting me on the car window and on the dashboard ," the victim recounted.

Her ex-husband then tried to forcefully undress her and when she resisted, he took a lighter and set fire to her hair. The nightmare for the 28-year-old, however, did not end there. The 33-year-old, in a state of amok, dragged her to his parents' house in Corinth, where he raped her.

The 28-year-old mother of two went to the hospital with serious facial injuries and is at risk of a retinal detachment.

The 33-year-old was brought before the Prosecutor on Monday, who - with the consent of the Investigator - ordered his pre-trial detention.

According to Star, the defendant told her that he intended to beat her so that she could not attend the christening of their 2.5-year-old child.

As the 28-year-old revealed, in fact, this was not the first time she was a victim of abuse by her estranged husband who, on the fateful morning, threatened to throw her into the Isthmus.
