An Indo-Canadian man and his mistress were served life sentence, without the option for parole for 25 years, after being found guilty of murder of a lady in early 2014.

An Indian-origin man in Canada along with his lover and mistress have been sent to jail term for 25 years for the first degree murder of a lady in early 2014.

The accused, 40-year-old Bhupinderpal Gill and 37-year-old Gurpreet Ronald, were reportedly in an extramarital relationship. After the long nine-week trial in the Ottawa Superior Court, the jury read out the verdict that Ronald had killed Bhupinderpal’s wife Jagtar Gill, 43, and sent him to jail for the next 25 years along with the mistress of the man.

Ronald was arrested by police on April 7, 2016; while Bhupinderpal was taken into custody a week later.

The murder took place when Bhupinderpal left home in January 2014, and Ronald went there and killed Jagtar, who was bedridden and was recovering from surgery. Police said Ronald repeatedly bludgeoned Jagtar, a mother of three, and also stabbed her. Unfortunately and coincidently the murder day also was the victim’s 17th wedding anniversary.

The murderers had met while they worked as bus drivers in Ottawa. A secret affair had started between the two. Gurpreet is also a mother of two girls and is married to Jason Ronald who is also a driver with the same company in Ottawa. Gurpreet admitted to the killing and also said that her relation with Bhupinderlal was unsatisfactory and she simultaneously had an affair with other drivers the same company. Strangely, Bhupinderlal said that he ended his relation with Gurpreet in 2013, before his wife was murdered in 2014.
