The husband of 'murdered' Brit Caroline Crouch has been pictured for the first time in prison where he's being held over her killing.

Charalambos (Babis) Anagnostopoulos, 33, allegedly confessed last week to smothering Ms Crouch, 20, in front of their daughter at their home in Greece.

He has since been spotted standing behind barbed wire at the Korydallos maximum security prison on the outskirts of Athens where he's held while accused of the murder of his wife.

Anagnostopoulos can be seen standing with his hands on his hips, wearing shorts and a t-shirt, and is apparently speaking to another inmate sat on a bench in the picture initially released by star.gr.

The expression on his face is unclear from the image.

It was reported that police approached Anagnostopoulos at a memorial service for Ms Crouch and told him he had to go with them to Athens to help with a breakthrough in the case, but he was soon told he was the only suspect in his wife's death.

A coroner's report suggested Ms Crouch was attacked while she was sleeping and suffered a slow, agonising death in the early hours of May 11.

A sharp increase in her heart rate was detected between 4.05am and 4.11am, the time her heart stopped beating, according to a fitness tracker she was wearing on her wrist.

The report gave the cause of death as suffocation.

The university student was found dead when police were called to the family home in Glyka Nera, an upscale suburb of Athens, that morning.

Helicopter pilot Anagnostopoulos initially claimed she was strangled and the family dog was also killed when intruders stormed into the maisonette and demanded cash and jewellery.

He told police that he and Ms Crouch were both tied up and gagged, and the burglars fled with about £10,000 worth of euros which was hidden in a Monopoly box.

But police say Anagnostopoulos confessed last week as he was interrogated for eight hours.

He allegedly admitted to smothering his wife with a pillow and staging a fake robbery to cover up his crime.
