A Kurigram court on Tuesday sentenced a man to death in a case filed over killing his neighbour in 2008.
Condemn convict Mahlam Mia, 48, a resident of Kuti Bamandanga village of Nageshwari upazila in the district, was tried in absentia.
Kurigram District and Session Judge Abdul Mannan handed down the verdict at noon, said Public Prosecutor Abraham Lincoln.
According to the case, Mahlam hacked one co-villager Aminur Islam, 23, in 2008 during a local arbitration.
Aminur Islam, later, succumbed to his injures after undergoing treatment for 22 days.
