Text size Aa Aa

An Indonesian woman has been jailed for 20 years, after being found guilty of killing a former classmate with cyanide-laced coffee.

Jessica Kumala Wongso, 28, was convicted of murdering Wayan Mirna Salihin at a Jakarta cafe in January.

The court heard that Wongso was angry that Salihin had suggested she break up with her troublesome boyfriend.

Wongso’s lawyers say they will appeal the verdict.
