A father and son were convicted and sentenced to undergo life imprisonment in a murder case by the Additional District and Sessions Court at Kumbakonam in Thanjavur district on Tuesday.

The court also slapped a fine of Rs. 5,000 each on G. Nagappan (57) and and his son N. Balamurugan (30), both farm labourers who resided at Yenanallur village near Nachiarkoil.

Sources said there was a property dispute between Nagappan and his brother Srinivasan. The dispute again arose in June 2013 and Nagappan and his son Balamurugan attacked Srinivasan’s son Pughazenthi (25) with wooden logs, killing him on the spot.
