Durban – The Phoenix great-grandfather who pleaded guilty to slitting his bedridden’s wife throat has escaped jail time.

Durban High Court Judge Shyam Gyanda handed down a five-year wholly suspended sentence to convicted killer Nundkumaran Poonusamy Pillay, 64.

Pillay pleaded guilty to slitting his common-law wife Dhunalutchmee Naidoo’s throat. Naidoo was 69 years old.

Her body was found in her Eastbury home on April 8.

In his plea statement read out in court by his legal aid attorney, Pragasen Marimuthu, he states that on the day of the murder his wife told him that she did not want to live like how they were living and begged for him to kill her.

He said he first tried to suffocate her and when that didn’t work took a kitchen knife and stabbed her.

In passing sentence Judge Gyanda said having seen all the evidence and mitigating factors he was satisfied that Pillay recommitting such an offence was virtually non-existent.

“He has to live with the guilt for the rest of his life and nothing this court can do will punish him further.”

  1. I am glad he did not go to jail. He suffered more than enough. Anybody thinks it was easy for him, never stood and watch a loved one pain and suffering.

  2. Unless you are in that person’s situation, you cannot understand what he went through. 🙏🙏🙏I pray this man can get into an old age home and rest 🙏🙏🙏🙏

  3. So the next person can just go and commit murder and say the person begged for it and they get off Scott free????this was more like getting rid of a burden Nd now he’s free to live his life….what a precedent our justice system has just set…..

  4. Justice can be paid in more ways than one, and not necessarily jail time only! Good decision by the court.
