A 61-year-old retired police officer charged with the murder of his six-year-old daughter was remanded in custody after testifying before an examining magistrate on Tuesday.

The 61-year-old, who is accused of killing the little girl in their home in Agia Varvara last week and then attempting to dispose of her body by throwing it in a rubbish bin, faces charges of murder and desecration of the dead.

In his testimony to the magistrate, the suspect claimed to be suffering from chronic and serious psychological problems which had been further aggravated by recent incidents and had led to his actions. His claim was angrily dismissed by his wife and the mother of the six-year-old victim, who said his methodical actions following the tragic incident suggest that his crime was premeditated.
The suspect, who later confessed to the killing, had disposed of the body and staged a burglary in his home. He had then gone to the police to report the girl missing the following morning, claiming that she had been kidnapped by burglars during the night.
