A woman and her son were sentenced to death by the Kandy High Court today after they were found guilty in the murder of the son’s wife in Rattota, Matale.

 A 30-year-old woman was shot and stabbed to death in 2009 while charges were filed against her husband and mother-in-law over the murder.

It is said that the witness testimony given by the victim’s then 4-year-old son was a major factor in the murder trial and that it led to the verdict.

The 58 year old woman, and her 38 year old son, were sentenced to death by High Court Judge Menaka Wijesundara today.
