A Dinajpur court has sentenced a man to death for murdering his wife over a domestic dispute in the district’s Parbatipur Upazila in 2014.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Shyam Sundar Roy delivered the verdict on Monday.

The court also fined the convict, Mojibur Rahman, Tk 25,000, prosecutor Robiul Islam said.

Mojibur, a resident of Khalilpur Mollapara in the upazila, fled his home after hacking his wife Kohinur Begum to death after an altercation in 2014, according to the case dossier.

The couple’s son, Babu, filed a case against Mojibur at Parbatipur Model Police Station a day after the incident. Police later arrested Mojibur and pressed murder charges against him.
