Albanian who killed Greek wife and took son arrested
According to Greek Police, Lesi and his son were found on Sunday morning in a cabin near the village of Ormylia in Chalkidiki, northern Greece.
Police said that the boy, Phoevos, is ok and staying with his grandparents, while Lesi will be charged with murder and kidnapping.
Police had been searching for Lesi for days.
A 75-year-old man called the police earlier on Sunday, saying that he had seen a little boy, wandering the streets just one kilometre from Ormylia – the village in which Phoevos lived with his mother before she was killed by her husband on January 6.
Lesi, 35, was arrested with Phoevos being alive and well.
The murder took place in front of his eldest child before he ran off with the youngest.
He was arrested after 18 days on the run. He had been living in a little cabin in the region where he had kept bees.
Phoevos’ grandfather spoke to local media following the arrest saying that his grandchild had lost a lot of weight and appeared frightened.
“At first he cried, but calmed down after seeing his older brother. The four-year-old had been brought to him wrapped in five to six jackets,” he said.
