UK woman convicted of poisoning her lover's curry

UK woman convicted of poisoning her lover's curry

A British court has convicted a woman of killing her former lover by poisoning his curry.
The Central Criminal Court found 45-year-old Lakhvir Singh guilty of murdering 39-year-old Lakhvinder Cheema and causing grievous bodily harm to his fiancee by mixing Indian aconite into their dinner in January 2009.
Cheema was dead within hours of eating the curry, and his fiancee, 21-year-old Gurjeet Choongh, fell violently ill after eating a smaller portion.
Prosecutor Edward Brown said Singh poisoned Cheema and Choongh because she was jealous about the pair's impending marriage.
Police later found traces of the poison _ also known as wolfsbane and monkshood _ among herbs in Singh's coat pocket and in her handbag.
