Duo kill friend's mum for cash to pay prostitute


Two young men who were hooked on booze and women murdered their friend's mother to steal gold and cash from her house in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, to pay for a prostitute, reported Makkal Osai.

Police who arrested P. Suresh, 26, and V. Sathish, 22 over the murder of 46-year-old Gnanasoundari were shocked when they learnt that the men had failed in two earlier attempts to kill her.

They strangled her with a skipping rope, then ransacked the house and fled with jewellery and RM86,000 (S$34,286) in cash on Tuesday night.
