THE husband of Caroline Crouch has confessed to her murder after she vowed to leave him, police have now confirmed.

Police say her Greek spouse admitted killing his British wife – just weeks after he claimed she died during a brutal invasion of the couple's home.

Babis Anagnostopoulos, 33, admitted to smothering her to death after more than eight hours of interrogation in the homicide department of Athens' police headquarters.

Cops have spent weeks searching for the fictional Albanian criminals that Babis said had broken into his home and strangled Caroline to death.

"The culprit is her 33-year-old husband who has confessed to the act," the authorities said in a statement released late last night.

Police have described the killer as a "top class actor" for staging the elaborate crime scene and playing the grieving widower for over a month.
