38-year-old Ramandeep Kaur Mann from Derby in the United Kingdom was sentenced to death by hanging for killing her husband during a vacation in India. Her lover helped her in the murder, and everything took place in front of the woman's 9-year-old son.

The British "Daily Mail" reported that Ramandeep Kaur Mann was found guilty of murdering her 34-year-old husband, Sukhjita Singh, during a holiday stay at his mother's house in India in 2016. Sukhjita, a father of two from Derby, was found in bed with his throat slit on September 2, 2016. During the trial, the couple's 9-year-old son, who was sleeping in the bed next to his father at the time of the incident, testified that he was awakened by the sight of his mother suffocating Sukhjita with a pillow. The woman's lover, who the murdered man had known since childhood - Gurpreet Singh, also participated in the murder. Before Ramandeep slit her husband's throat, Gurpreet struck his friend with a hammer.

Now, seven years later, 38-year-old Ramandeep has been found guilty of murdering her husband, and an Indian court has sentenced her to death by hanging. Gurpreet Singh was also found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment with a fine of 10,000 rupees (approximately $134).

The couple had been married since 2005. Ramandeep was to testify to the police that her husband refused her a divorce. On the day of the murder, the woman gave the whole family sleeping pills - she added them to the meal she prepared. However, she did not know that her eldest son did not touch the food, which made him a witness to the murder. When Sukhjita Singh fell asleep, Mann let her lover Gurpreet in.

The "Daily Mail" cites the words of a lawyer involved in the trial: - The eldest son of the couple told the court that he was sleeping with his father when his mother smothered her husband with a pillow. Then Gurpreet hit Mr. Singha in the head with a hammer. Later, he pulled out a knife from his pocket and handed it to Ramandeep, who slit her husband's throat.

According to a verdict by an Indian court, Ramandeep Kaur Mann from Derby in the United Kingdom is facing death by hanging. The mother of the murder victim commented on the verdict, admitting that she felt relief: - My prayers have been answered. I got what I expected from the court. I demanded the death penalty for Ramandeep.
