A man has been sentenced to life for the murder of a woman in Yeovil last year. Police called to Tudor Court last August found the body of Mayurathy Perinpamoorthy in a ground-floor flat. She died from multiple stab wounds to her neck.
Gobinath Vellasamy was arrested in Tudor Court shortly after police responded to the incident.
He was charged with murder and today a jury at Exeter Crown Court found him guilty of murder. He was given a life sentence and must serve a minimum of 18 years in prison.
