Youth gets life term for killing step-mother

Tikamgarh :  A local court has awarded life imprisonment and slapped a fine of Rs 4,000 to a youth for burning his step-mother alive in a two-year-old case. Additional Sessions Judge RP Sonkar yesterday convicted Virsinghpura village-resident Ramesh Kushwaha for committing the crime. According to the prosecution, Ramesh first attacked Chironchi Bai (45) with an axe and then set her ablaze after pouring kerosene on her on September 12, 2014. She died on the spot. Ramesh was said to be jealous as the step mother reportedly favoured his elder brother Mukesh.
