A judge must decide who will now look after the baby of Caroline Crouch after her husband admitted killing her.
Pages leaked from Caroline's diary include multiple entries detailing fights between her and pilot Babis Anagnostopoulos, 32.
Babis last week finally confessed to killing his 20-year-old wife in Greece after police confronted him with evidence proving his claims she was killed by brutal burglars could not be true.
One diary entry, written in July 2020 when the couple’s daughter Lydia was just one month old, read: “Today my little one is a month old – it’s also the day I told Babi I want to leave… I feel awful.”

Lydia was being looked after by her dad until he was charged with strangling his wife and killing their dog on Wednesday, it is understood.
The judge now must decide if Lydia will be cared for by Caroline's relatives or Babis' family, The Sun reports.
A public prosector is to decide who should take custody of the 11-month-old, according to reports.
Babis reportedly said via his lawyer that his first concern is Lydia and her wellbeing.

Lawyer Vassilis Spryou told Skai news his client had expressed fears he could lose Lydia as she could end up being taken in by another family.
"The only thing that interests him is his child," the lawyer said.
"His main concern is his child's future because he has heard different things about his child going to a foster family, that he will lose her from his life."
Both families are said to be in discussions.

Caroline’s friend and former English literature teacher Kiki Anagnostou said: “The behaviour of Carol’s husband at the funeral was bordering on cold-blooded.
“He held the baby in his arms the whole time – he didn’t let anyone else carry her, not even for a minute. But back then nobody suspected him.”
In his confession, Babis admitted staging a fake raid at their home in Glyka Nera, near Athens on May 11.

He invented a story that three burglars had tied up the couple and threatened their daughter with a gun, before strangling Caroline, killing the family dog and stealing £10,000.
Detectives initially investigated his claims, but data collected from Caroline’s fitness tracker showed that her heart had stopped before the break-in was supposed to have taken place.
Babis’s full confession was leaked to Greek media last week.
In it he claimed he suffocated Caroline accidentally during a row then plotted his elaborate cover-up so their daughter did not lose both parents.
