A businessman born in India has been sentenced by a Georgia jury to life in prison without parole for having his black daughter-in-law killed.

Jurors deliberated less than two hours on Friday before delivering the verdict in an Atlanta area courtroom. A jury convicted 68-year-old Chiman Rai on Thursday of masterminding the death of Sparkle Michelle Rai. Prosecutors had sought the death penalty for the Mississippi man.

During the trial, prosecutors argued that Chiman Rai believed the 22-year-old woman brought shame to his family because she was black.

Sparkle Rai was found strangled and stabbed weeks after her March 2000 wedding to Rai’s son, Ricky Rai.
