The Colombo High Court yesterday sentenced Lokugam Hewage Darshana alias Raju to death after being found guilty of murdering a 52-year-old woman and her 17 year-old daughter at Kotakethana in July 2012.   

When the case was taken up by Colombo High Court Judge Vikum Kaluarachchi, informed Court that the trial had identified the proof for the charges filed against the accused and he had been identified as the one who had carried out the double murder.   The Colombo High Court had earlier acquitted Ashoka Chandani Kumara alias ‘Batti’ on the basis that there was inadequate evidence to convict her.
