Kevin murder case judgment on Aug 14text_fields
Kottayam: A court here will pronounce its judgment on August 14 in the sensational Kevin murder case, the first honour killing in the state in its history.
Racing against Kerala high court’s deadline of six months to complete the case, the trial was over in three months.
A gang allegedly led by Shyanu Chacko kidnapped Kevin, a Dalit Christian, along with his relative Aneesh in the early hours of May 27, 2018.
The incident took place days after Kevin filed papers to marry Shyanu Chacko’s sister Neenu Chacho. Later, Kevin’s body was found in a canal near Thenmala on May 28.
The fourteen others accused in the case include Neenu’s father and brother Shyanu Chacko.
