A court in Satkhira on Tuesday sentenced a man, a lone accused in a case filed for killing four members of a family in Kalaroa upazila, to death.
This is the first time verdict in history of the district's judiciary which is pronounced within 20 working days.
Senior District and Sessions Judge Court Judge Sheikh Mofizur Rahman handed down the verdict at about 11:45am.
Condemned convict Rayhanur Rahman is physically ill.
On October 14, last year, he hacked his elder brother Shahinur Rahman, 40, Shahinur's wife Sabina Khatun, 30, their 10-year-old son Siam and eight-year-old daughter Tasnim Sultana to death over a family feud, the case statement said.
Later, Shahinur's mother-in-law Moyna Khatun filed the murder case.
Rayhanur Rahman gave his confessional statement in court on October 21.
