An Indian dentist couple were sentenced to life in prison on Tuesday for slitting the throats of their teenage daughter and servant in a case that transfixed the nation, a lawyer said.

Guilty- Rajesh Talwar and his wife Nupur

A judge handed the sentence to Rajesh and Nupur Talwar who were earlier convicted of murdering Aarushi, 14, and Nepalese servant Hemraj Banjade at their home in an affluent New Delhi suburb in 2008.

“It’s life,” independent lawyer Naresh Yadav told a scrum of reporters outside the court in Ghaziabad, a satellite city just outside the capital.
