21 June, 2018, 5:37 pm
THE 43-YEAR-OLD woman who murdered her de-facto partner by setting him alight was today sentenced to life imprisonment.
Marianne Devi threw a bowl of kerosene on her husband from head to toe and set him on fire.
The incident took place in November 2016.
High Court judge Justice Salesi Temo while delivering the sentence today said there were other ways in which Devi could have resolved the matter but she chose murder.
Devi will need to serve a minimum of 17 years before she can apply for presidential pardon.
