Puttur: Killing of Roseline Lobo by Husband in Kaukrady – Ruling on Punishment on Dec 16

Puttur: Bernard Monteiro of Kapinamajalu in Kaukradi village in the taluk, has been convicted of causing the death of his wife Roseline Lobo.

The conviction had been made earlier this week by the district fifth additional sessions court based here, considering it as a case of manslaughter not amounting to murder.

The quantum of punishment was to be pronounced on Thursday. Now the court has deferred the ruling to Dec 16.

It was argued in his defence on Thursday that the man had been in judicial custody since July 8, 2013. The confinement period be treated as jail term and he be released, argued the defence lawyer.

But the prosecutor argued that the man did not deserve any sympathy and there was a provision under the law to commit him to a jail-term up to 10 years. The prosecution also urged that his children be given relief from the legal services authority of the government.
