Kochi | A Kerala court on Wednesday gave the death penalty to a man in a triple murder case.

The Additional District Court (for cases against Atrocities and Sexual violence against women and children) sentenced the man to death for the murder of his eldest brother's then 33-year-old daughter, Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) Bindu P A told reporters.

The SPP said that the woman was hacked 35 times with a sharp weapon, which indicated the brutality of the offence.

The prosecutor said that the court also sentenced the man to life imprisonment for each of the murders of his eldest brother and sister-in-law.

Besides that, the court also sentenced the accused to a cumulative 46 years for various offences, including attempt to murder, house trespass and causing grievous injuries, and imposed a fine of Rs 4.16 lakh on him, the SPP said.
