A chilling timeline has emerged of the fateful events on May 11 that saw Babis stage an elaborate crime scene in a bid to trick cops into believing a gang of thugs had raided the home.

He reportedly told cops his "judgement became blurred" after rowing with Caroline in the hours leading up to her death.

He said that he killed her in a fit of rage after she threatened to take their daughter away.

"I did not want to go to prison, because I wanted to raise my daughter," the 33-year-old was said to have told detectives.

But it seems the helicopter pilot calculated his next moves after policerevealed it was Babis who removed the memory card in the security camera of the maisonette the couple shared.

In the final recorded moments, he can be seen sitting on the couch cradling his 11-month-old daughter Lydia, while ferociously typing on his mobile phone at around 12.30am, Greek news outlet Protothema reports.

He was exchanging angry messages with Caroline, who was in the attic, with one calling the other "stupid", officers revealed.

Just under an hour later, at 1.20am, Babis approached the recording device in the living room and removed the memory card – proving it was not destroyed by the alleged robbers on their way in as he had previously claimed.

The pair continued to viciously argue over text for another two hours and 40 minutes, the publication reported.

CAROLINE CROUCH MURDER TIMELINE

12.35 am – Babis is seen on the living room CCTV camera with daughter Lydia, texting Caroline who is in the attic 

1.20 am – Babis removes CCTV memory cards causing camera blackout and for the next two hours the couple exchange abusive text messages 

4.00 am – Caroline's smartwatch shows intense pulse stimulation 

4.11 am – Pulses detected on Caroline's smartwatch stop

6am – Babis calls police reporting a robbery at the couple's home

At 4.01am, Caroline's biometric watch that she wore on her wrist recorded an intense pulse stimulation.

It was at that moment that Babis began attacking his wife, in front of their infant daughter, as Caroline struggled against the man 13 years her senior.

The brave Brit then fought against him for a further ten minutes, until her watch recorded that her heart had stopped beating at 4.11am in the morning.

Babis then sickeningly placed their daughter next to her late mother in a bid to create a more convincing crime scene, police said.

Caroline died hours before the time Babis suggested she must have been murdered, allowing him time to stage the robbery by throwing clothes and ransacking the house.

Caroline had allegedly messaged a pal on the night of her death, telling them she was leaving Babis.


Data from her phone also showed that the young mum had tried to book herself into a hotel with her daughter, detectives said.

To substantiate his sick charade, Babis drowned their pet Husky puppy and hanged its body from a stair banister in a bid to blame the fictional Albanian criminal's cops have been chasing for weeks.

According to reports, Babis eventually broke down during an eight-hour interrogation, saying: "That night we had been arguing from early on.

"At some point she threw the child in her cot and she told me to get up and leave the house.

"She pushed me and punched me. My judgement became blurred, I strangled her, and then I staged the robbery."

Sources told local media Caroline had told Babis she was leaving him and he flew into a violent rage.

Other important evidence that disrupted his timeline of the alleged botched robbery includes an app on Babis' phone that measured his steps, which showed repeated movement at the time he claimed to be bound by the raiders.

Babis had earlier said he lost consciousness for up to 30 minutes due to the constriction of the tape tied around his neck.

But data also appeared to show he was active on his mobile during the time he was allegedly tied to the bed.

Police have described him as a "top class actor" after staging the detailed crime scene and keeping up the facade of the grieving widower for over a month.

A Greek public prosecutor is to decide the fate of baby Lydia it was announced Friday as the pilot appeared in court to face charges.

The 11-month old girl is crrebtly belived to be staying with Anagnostopoulos' architect father and teacher mother. 

The prosecutor will decide "immediately" whether Caroline's family home on Alonissos would be a better environment for the little girl to grow up in.
