Man gets two life sentences for killing wife using cobra

An Indian court, on Wednesday handed a rare double life sentence to Sooraj Kumar, 28, who murdered his wife, 25, by making a cobra bite her while she was sleeping.

It was reported that Sooraj Kumar was arrested at his home in southern Kerala state in 2020 after his wife died from snakebite.

A court in Kollam district held Kumar guilty of murder.

He was held guilty for poisoning his wife and making an earlier attempt to kill her using a Russell’s viper.

Judge M Manoj, sentenced the accused to two consecutive life sentences, but did not accept the prosecution demand for capital punishment considering his age and opportunity to reform.
