A mother and son were sentenced to life in prison by a Thessaloniki court on Wednesday over the 2011 murder of their respective husband and father.

The victim, aged 58, was shot dead with a hunting rifle by his son, 26, in Neokastro in the Imathia region of Central Macedonia.

His wife, aged 52, has been convicted as a moral accomplice, while another man, aged 32, was sentenced to 16 years for providing the weapon.

Financial and personal differences are cited as being the cause of the crime.
