Australian man gets 35 years in jail for killing three Indians

Melbourne, July 5
A 42-year-old Australian was today sentenced to at least 35 years in jail without parole for brutally killing his Indian girlfriend and her two siblings, in the longest sentence handed down in Queensland history.

Queensland Supreme Court judge John Byrne handed down three life sentences to Massimo 'Max' Sica for killing his former 24-year-old girlfriend Neelma Singh, and her siblings Kunal, 18, and Sidhi, 12, in 2003 in Brisbane.

The three were found dead in the spa of their parents' home at Bridgeman Downs, on Brisbane's northern fringe.

Justice Byrne called Sica manipulative and deceitful and said he had shown no remorse for the "brutal, horrific crimes in the worst category of murder".Sica showed no emotion as the sentence was read out.

Earlier on Tuesday, a jury of eight men and four women found Sica guilty of triple murder. PTI
