Man Sentenced to Death for Double Murder had Gambling Addiction

An Indian man who committed a 2012 double murder in the US will be sentenced to death by the Montgomery County Court in Pennsylvania.

The 28-year-old IT professional, Raghunandan Yandamuri, was convicted of killing his Satyavathi Venna, 61, and her 10-month-old granddaughter, Saanvi Venna, in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.  Prosecutors claim the man plotted to kidnap the child for ransom to help pay for his gambling addiction. 

The jury of five women and seven men deliberated for nearly four hours on Tuesday to determine his life sentence without the possibility of parole.  Formal sentencing will take place in 45 days.

Yandamuri had maintained his innocence throughout the trial and chose to represent himself.  He showed no remorse.  Jurors at times were moved to tears after being shown gruesome crime scene evidence.
