A woman who was sentenced to de@th for the 2013 gruesome m#rder of her husband has been released from prison in Benin city, Edo State, after a landmark ruling at the Supreme Court.
.
.
It was gathered that, the deceased, Mr Victor Isonguyo, a Senior Director with the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), was m#rdered around Sapele road, in Benin, and b#rnt to a crisp inside his Toyota Corolla car in 2013.

.
His wife, Mrs Enobong Isonguyo and their family pastor, Udoka Ukachukwu, were arrested, convicted and sentenced to de@th by h@nging. An appellate court upheld the trial court’s decision, confirming the de@th penalty for the duo.
.
.
However, Enobong’s defence counsel, Olayiwola Afolabi, proceeded to the Supreme court, where the earlier judgements were overturned.
.
.
The court described the de@th sentence as a miscarriage of justice and ordered the woman to be released unconditionally.
