The Supreme Court today (October 22) confirmed the death sentence given by the Appeals Court to Jude Shramantha Anthony Jayamaha who was convicted of the Royal Park murder in 2005.

Shramantha Jayamaha was convicted of murdering 19 year old Swedish national, Yvonne Jonsson on July 1, 2005 and was sentenced to 12 years in prison by the Colombo High Court.

The defendant filed a petition to the Appeals Court requesting the court to reduce his sentence while the Attorney General filed an appeal stating that the initial sentencing was too lenient.

The Appeals Court later set aside the defendant’s petition and sentenced him to death but Jayamaha once again filed a petition against the order to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court today confirmed the death sentence against Shramantha Jayamaha.

Yvonne Jonsson was residing at her apartment on the 23rd floor of the Royal Park complex in Rajagiriya while her body was found on the 19th floor.
