Kerala man detained in US for shooting pregnant wife | Kochi News – Times of India

KOTTAYAM: Amal Reji, originally from Ettumanoor, Kottayamwas arrested for shooting his pregnant woman in the parking lot of a church in Chicago, United States, his relatives said.
Reji and his wife Meera Abraham, 32, from Uzhavoor near Pala, has been living in the United States for six years. They have a four-year-old child.
A relative said that Meera was three months pregnant. “Our relatives in the US told us that Meera had an abortion, but her condition is stable now,” the relative said.
Meera was shot several times in the abdomen and chin, the relative said. Reportedly, there were family issues between the couple and they were talking about it in the car after church. Meera was rushed to hospital while police took Amal into custody. Meera’s condition was critical on Tuesday due to excessive bleeding, her relative said. Meera’s twin sister also lives in the same locality with her family while Amal’s siblings – three brothers and a sister – are also settled in Chicago.
Last week, a Florida court sentenced a Originally from Kottayam to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for the gruesome murder of his wife, also from the district, in 2020.
