Wife kills husband with teen boyfriend's help

A teacher in India got her teenage lover to help her kill her drunk husband, but their scheme was revealed after a post-mortem was conducted.

Sudha Gupta, 28, murdered her husband, an Air Force sergeant, with the help of her 17-year-old boyfriend.

She claimed her 40-year-old husband had died of a heart attack and she went on to live with the teenager, but a post-mortem revealed their bluff a month later, reported Times of India.

After being questioned, the pair admitted to strangling Sergeant Ramesh Chandra at their home in Subrato Park in Delhi Cantonment on April 10 after he had passed out, having been drinking from morning to noon.

The teen has since been sent to a reformational home.

Gupta and her husband have a three-year-old daughter, who joined her mother in Tihar Jail yesterday because she has no one to look after her.

Gupta told the police she had been dissatisfied with her sex life since their marriage in 2008 and Sgt Chandra's alcoholism had strained their relationship within two years.

As a top graduate, she aspired to a better life and began teaching at an engineering coaching institute a few months ago, where she met the teenager, the son of an Indian Air Force employee.
