Satkhira Women and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal Judge MG Azam delivered the verdict over the 2010 killing with the convict Sree Kartik Kumar Ghosh on the docks.
The convict was also fined Tk10,000 while the court acquitted five others as the charges against them were not proven beyond a reasonable doubt, said Special Public Prosecutor Jahirul Haider Babu.
According to the case statement, Ghosh married Shreepa Ghosh of Khulna in 2001. It was reported that Kartik often assaulted his wife for dowry.
