Supreme court upholds sentences for murder of 18-year-old

12-03-2012

The Supreme Court has upheld a 12 and two 14 year sentences handed to three men who were found guilty of murdering an 18- year-old girl who would not be forced into prostitution. The girl was brutally beaten up, strangled and her body was thrown into a nearby lake. Although two of the men pleaded innocent the third broke down and related how she had been killed. An autopsy showed that the girl died of suffocation by strangling, but the culprits were unsure and tied her arms and legs before throwing her body into the lake.
