    ATHENS, February 15 (RIA Novosti) - A resident of Nea Anchialos in eastern Greece killed his mother-in-law and son and attempted a suicide, local police said Thursday.

    The man shot his 73-year old mother-in-law and six-year old son from a carbine when they were asleep. His second eight-year old son was slightly wounded in the neck but managed to jump out of the window.

    He spared only his paralyzed wife and then tried to commit a suicide. The man and his son were hospitalized.

    Police are investigating the causes of the crime.
