Stressed out banker gets life for killing wife

Gavel

A former Morgan Stanley employee, burdened by gambling debts and fearing for his job, killed his wife 'in a fit of rage' last July, London police said after he was sentenced to life in prison Thursday.

Bloomberg News reports that Manas Kapoor strangled his wife, Shivani, on the same day in July that he was due to attend a disciplinary meeting at the bank over a multi-million dollar accounting error, police said in a statement.

The 35-year-old worked as a Product Controller in the finance department of Morgan Stanley in Canary Wharf, London.

The jury found Kapoor, who had about $13,300 in gambling debts, 'killed his wife, strangling her in a fit of rage when the many stresses came to a head', Detective Inspector Simon Pickford said in the statement.

Kapoor had been summoned to work for a meeting on 'a serious accounting error involving millions of dollars he was being held responsible for', police said.
