Melbourne, Jun 29: Sukhmander Singh,an Indian national was
sentenced to 17 years imprisonment by the Victorian Supreme Court
the murder of his wife Mohinder Kaur.
Mohinder was beaten to death with a wooden stake by Singh on Valley Lake Boulevard at Niddrie on May 7, 2009. Mohinder used to abuse his wife almost every day and beating would happen almost once a week.
The couple had four children and their daughter Sarabjit Kaur, 21, was studying in Melbourne.
Justice Terry Forrest said that Singh's conduct towards his family improved significantly after he arrived in Melbourne in early Mar 2010. However, his behaviour deteriorated and he attacked his wife in last May 2010 while taking a stroll on Valley Lake Boulevard in Niddrie suburb in Melbourne's northwest.
Judge Terry Forrest said that there is no soft corner for Sukhmander Singh, who killed his wife Mohinder Kaur and abused her for years.
