A double murder involving astrologer Miltiades Moutafis and Paraskevi Gezou, the owner of an online cosmetics sales firm, which took place in the Athens suburb of Halandri on Feb. 26 2009 has reportedly been solved.

A 36-year-old owner of a coffee shop in the Aghios Panteleimonas district of Athens with a criminal record was arrested and charged with the double homicide. The motives behind the crime have not yet been clarified, although police are examining the possibility of a "murder contract".

The suspect was led before a prosecutor on Monday.
