Taxi driver murder sentencing

  • 12/11/2015

A 63-year-old former Auckland taxi driver is to be sentenced for the murder of his partner with a kitchen knife.

Jiwan Ram is due in the High Court at Auckland today after being found guilty in September of the murder, rather than manslaughter, of his 47-year-old de facto partner Bimla Wati.

In November last year, Ram stabbed her six times with a large kitchen knife during an argument in the Mt Wellington house they shared with Ms Wati's niece and two boarders.
