A Feni court on Thursday sentenced a man to death for killing his wife on Facebook live over a family feud in 2020.

Judge Dr Begum Jebunnesa of District and Sessions Judge Court handed down the verdict.

The death-row convict is identified as Obaidul Haque Tutul of Bahirpur area of the district town.

The court also fined him Tk50,000.

Public Prosecutor (PP) Hafez Ahmed confirmed the matter.

Earlier on 15 April, 2020, Tutul had streamed the gruesome incident live on Facebook.

The convict Obaidul hacked his wife Tahmina Akhter to death at his home and later he informed police.

Police rushed to the spot and arrested Tutul from his home and seized the murder weapon, a machete, as well as his mobile phone.

Later in the day, Tahmina's father Sahab Uddin filed a case against Tutul with Feni Model Police Station in this connection.

The couple, who got married five years ago after dating for five years, had a one-and-a-half-year-old daughter.
