ERODE: The Erode Fast Track Court Judge, Narayanaswamy, on Wednesday awarded life sentence to a woman and her paramour in a murder case.

The prosecution case was that Kamalam (40) of Manikkaradu near Chennimalai deserted her husband, Raju, and was living with Srirangaswamy (57) of Tirupur. As Raju wanted to live with Kamalam, she and Srirangaswamy decided to do away with him. On August 5, 2004, Kamalam and Srirangaswamy gave poisoned liquor to Raju. Raju shared it with his friend, Duraisamy, a hotel owner of Manimalaikaradu, Chennimalai.

While Duraisamy died, Raju was admitted to hospital and later recovered. The Chennimalai police secured Kamalam and Srirangaswamy.
