A jilted man who stabbed his fiancee to death in front of her mother has been convicted by a jury of her murder.
Jigukumar Sorthi knifed 21-year-old Bhavini Pravin four times in the living room of her family home in Moores Road, Belgrave, Leicester, on the afternoon of Monday, March 2.
The prosecution alleged it was a revenge attack because the Pravin family had called off his arranged religious marriage with Bhavini, who died in the living room despite desperate attempts by medics to save her.
The jury of seven women and five men deliberated for just one hour today before finding Sorthi guilty of murder.
Bhavini's family was in the public gallery to hear
