The man who murdered his British wife Caroline Crouch has been attacked by a fellow inmate at a Greek prison, according to his lawyer.

Babis Anagnostopoulos is serving a life sentence for suffocating 20-year-old Caroline in front of her 11-month-old daughter in May last year.

Caroline had been tortured and smothered with a pillow at her home in Athens while Anagnostopoulos staged a robbery and even hung the couple’s dog, Roxy, to cover his tracks.

The 34-year-old claimed an Albanian gang was responsible for Caroline’s death, only to eventually admit the murder when his web of lies was exposed.

Lawyer of Anagnostopoulos said the sun that his client had been attacked in a notorious Athenian prison.

In one incident narrowly prevented by prison guards, Papaioannidis said an inmate told him he had sought him out and planned to kill him.

“He reportedly said, ‘I want to kill him. I came from another prison. I was looking for him'” are true,” Papaioannidis told the outlet.

Anagnostopoulos was transferred to the Malandrinos facility from the high-security Korydallos prison in Athens.

His lawyer claimed requests for the former helicopter pilot to stay in the Greek capital had been denied.

“He’s very concerned that the new prison houses around 900 felons and is very tough, very tough,” added Papaioannidis.

Caroline’s father, David Crouch, recently said that Anagnostopoulos, who was locked up in the notorious prison “with fellow murderers but also perverts of every stripe” had offered a little comfort.

Anagnostopoulos was sentenced to life imprisonment last May but has appealed the sentence.

Papaioannidis said his client will appeal because he acted “in the heat of the moment” after a dispute with Crouch over their daughter.

He will also appeal the testimony of the couple’s marriage counselor, claiming she was not qualified to produce it.

Anagnostopoulos’ cover-up was eventually uncovered after police found digital evidence rendering his chronology of events impossible, including data from Caroline’s smartwatch and evidence that Anagnostopoulos had been active at a time he claimed to have been tied up .
