Misonzi Chanthunya has been found guilty of murdering his girlfriend Linda Gasa, this according to the Zomba High Court today.
Chanthunya was answering two charges of murder and another of hindering burial of a dead body.
Judge Ruth Chinangwa said the state has proved that Gasa was murdered through poisoning, and on who caused the death, she said circumstantial evidence shows Chanthunya killed Gasa as he was the last person to share company with her on the day of fate.
According to the Judge, evidence also shows that Chanthunya tried to conceal the death.
Therefore, the court has also convicted Chanthunya on a charge of hindering the burial of a dead body.
The incident happened in the year 2010, where Chanthunya was in an affair with Gasa who was a Zimbabwean and was a student at MCA.
After murdering her, he buried the dead body in a bath at his lodge, and this was revealed when the police invaded the place and exhumed the body.
Meanwhile, Chanthunya’s lawyer, Michael Goba Chipeta has faulted the ruling, citing various irregularities.
