A Cumilla court on Wednesday sentenced a man to death for killing his wife in 2012.
The condemned convict is Moazzem Hossain Bhuiya Sumon, 30, son of Sheikh Ahmed Bhuiya of Chouddagram upazila.
Cumilla Woman and Child Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge Mohammad Abdullah Al Mamun handed down the punishment.
The court also fined him Tk 10,000.
According to the prosecution, Sumon demanded Tk one lakh from his wife Rozina as dowry. As she refused to provide the money, Sumon stabbed Rozina indiscriminately on February 26, 2012, leaving her dead.
Rozina’s sister Sharmin Akter lodged a complaint with Chouddagram Police. Police later registered a case.
