| May 29, 2011

New York: An Indian-origin man, convicted of going on a shooting spree and killing two persons including his estranged wife in a Clifton church in New Jersey, has been awarded a double life sentence without parole by a judge.

Joseph Pallipurath, 29, drove from California to New Jersey in 2008 and shot to death two people in the St Thomas Syrian Orthodox Knanaya Church. A woman, who is now wheelchair-bound for life, was also injured in the attack.

The victims were his estranged wife Reshma James (24) and Dennis John (25), a parishioner who tried to help her.

"Nobody can understand or comprehend the feeling, suffering and emptiness that my family and I have to go through," Aley John, the victim's mother, was quoted as saying by the CBS News.
