Chamarajanagar: District and Sessions court in Chamarajanagar on Thursday sentenced a man to life imprisonment for killing his wife after taking into consideration the testimony of his daughter.

On March 27, 2017, the accused Nayaka, a resident of Kolipalya village in the taluk had assaulted his wife Puspa Bai with an axe thereby killing her. The couple’s daughter, aged 8, was an eye-witness to the murder.

Based on her testimony, court judge Lokappa awarded life imprisonment to the accused.
