Seya Sadevmi murder Case to be heard daily

The hearing of the lawsuit with respect to the killing of Seya Sadevmi in Kotadeniyawa will be continued from yesterday. It was taken up in the presence of Negombo High Court Judge Champa Janaki Jayaratne. The Attorney General have filed four indictments against Saman Jayalalth, the chief suspect in the murder case.

Earlier, the Minuwangoda Magistrate was apprised that DNA samples found on Seya Sadevmi match Saman Jayalath. Seya Sadevmi was found strangled to death on September 13th last year while she was reported missing from her home at Kotadeniyawa in Divulapitiya on the previous day.

A schoolboy and a father of one child were initially apprehended but they were acquitted of the charges as their DNA reports did not match.
