Man gets life sentence for murdering son

According to prosecution, Gurunathan, 70, of JJ Nagar under Munneerpallam police station limits had a property dispute with his son Karthikeyan alias Karthik, 55. As the enmity worsened, the old man murdered his son in 2014 and the Munneerpallam police registered case against Gurunathan, his wife and mother of the deceased Pitchammal and his younger brother Kannan and arrested the trio.

Even as the trial was going on, Pitchammal and Kannan died.
