A court here yesterday sentenced five people, including the husband, to life imprisonment for killing a woman in 2009.

The convicts are Rafiqul Islam, Shamim Ahmed, Akter Hossain alias Boro Akter, Arash Ali and Akter Hossain alias Chhoto Akter of Biddyakut area in Nabinagar upazila of the district.

Only Rafiqul was in the court when the verdict was given, while four others were tried in absentia.
