Cyprus Double Murder Suspects Deny Involvement

The murder of Giorgos Hadjigeorgiou and his wife, Dina Sergiou has shocked Cyprus

Two suspects denied any involvement on Saturday in the brutal double murder of a teacher and his wife that took place in Nicosia last week.

The pair, a man, 23, and a 22-year-old woman, were remanded to custody for eight days in connection with the murder of Giorgos Hadjigeorgiou, 60, and his wife, Dina Sergiou, 59.

The two, arrested on Friday evening, had been named by a 33-year-old suspect whom police detained earlier this week.

Hadjigeorgiou was found to have suffered 25-30 knife wounds and Dina Sergiou was stabbed 10 times.

Their teenage son, who was in the house the night his parents were killed, told police he saw two men.
