ONE of Greece's best-known folk musicians went on trial accused of murdering his daughter's married boyfriend. Akis Panou, 64, fired into the face of Sotiris Yalamas, 29, in August in the village of Lefki. Yalamas died instantly in front of Panou and his daughter, pregnant with Yalamas's child. Mr Panou said his daughter's relationship shamed the family. He was well known for the song "My life is just one cigarette that I don't like, but drag away at".
