Three robbers burst into their family house in Athens on Tuesday, killing the 20-year-old mother and tying up her pilot husband.
The hooded men also killed the family’s pet dog while the husband, 33, survived.
Their dog was left hanging on the fence of their suburban home in Glyka Nera, police said.
Officers confirmed that the mother was born in Greece but had a British passport.
