Man denies ex-wife crossbow murder
AN alleged crossbow killer has denied shooting his heavily pregnant ex-wife.
Ramanodge Unmathallegadoo, 51, of no fixed address, pleaded not guilty to the murder of Sana Muhammad, 35, and attempted child destruction.
The victim, formerly known as Devi Unmathallegadoo, was eight months pregnant when she was attacked at her home in Ilford, east London, on November 12 last year.
After she was fatally injured, medics managed to deliver her son in hospital.
The defendant spoke only to confirm his identity and enter not guilty pleas via video-link from Pentonville prison.
His trial is due to start at the Old Bailey on April 8.
