Sayeed Ahmed, the judge, handed down the verdict against Oishee Rahman (pictured) for killing her police officer father Mahfuzur Rahman and mother Swapna Rahman in August 2013, Mohammad Rahman, the prosecutor, said.

The court also sentenced one of her friends to two years in prison for her role in the murder.

Investigators said Rahman served sedative-laced coffee to her parents before stabbing them in their home in Dhaka’s central Malibagh area.

Police recovered the couple’s bodies two days later and their daughter surrendered at the police station the day after that.

Faruk Ahmed, Rahman’s counsel, said his client would challenge the verdict in a higher court.
