Sydney, April 12 Rajini Narayan, who is accused of setting fire to her husband’s genitals and torching their home in Australia, Monday pleaded not guilty and will stand trial in the Supreme Court, a media report said.
Fortyfour-year-old Rajini pleaded not guilty to murdering her husband Satish. She also pleaded not guilty to one count of arson, Adelaide Now reported.
Rajini allegedly poured methylated spirits over her husband’s genitals before setting him on fire in December 2008. Satish then knocked over the bottle of spirits, leading to a fire that caused $1 million damage. He suffered major burns in the fire and died in hospital, the media report said.
Last year, the court heard the claim that Rajini had confessed to the attack.
“My husband loves another woman, he hugs her. I’m a jealous wife, his penis should belong to me, I just wanted to burn his penis so it belongs to me and no one else,” she is alleged to have told neighbours.
“It’s just his penis I wanted to burn, I didn’t mean this to happen.”
