MAJELIS Hakim Pengadilan Negeri Denpasar, Bali menjatuhkan vonis enam tahun penjara kepada warga Inggris, Senin (13/3) karena terbukti melakukan pembunuhan terhadap anggota polisi lalu lintas Aipda Wayan Sudarsa.

David Taylor, 33, dan kekasihnya asal Australia Sara Connor, 45, ditangkap pada Agustus tahun lalu setelah ditemukan jasad Wayan Sudarsa di pantai Kuta yang, dengan luka di kepala dan lehernya.

David dan Sara terlibat dalam perselisihan dengan korban Sudarsa yang mereka duga mencuri dompet Sara.

"Terdakwa terbukti melanggar hukum dan dijatuhi hukuman enam tahun penjara," kata ketua majelis hakim Yanto saat menjatuhkan vonis.

Menurut hakim perbuatan terdakwa yang mengakibatkan orang lain meninggal dunia itu telah melanggar Pasal 170 Ayat 2 ke-3 KUHP tentang penganiayaan berat.

Vonis majelis hakim kepada terdakwa itu, lebih ringan dari tuntutan Jaksa Penuntut Umum (JPU) yang menuntut hukuman delapan tahun penjara seperti dikutip Reuters yang dilansir MailOnline.

A COURT in the Indonesian holiday island of Bali jailed a British man for six years on Monday for his role in the murder of a traffic policeman.

David Taylor, 33, and his Australian girlfriend Sara Connor, 45, were arrested in August last year after the body of police official Wayan Sudarsa was found on the popular Kuta beach, with wounds to his head and neck.

Taylor and Connor were involved in an altercation with Sudarsa whom they suspected of stealing Connor's purse.

"The defendant has been proven to have violated the law and is sentenced to six years in prison," presiding judge Yanto, who goes by one name, told the courtroom.

Taylor, dressed in a white shirt and black pants, nodded as a legal aide translated. He had denied killing the policeman.

Prosecutors had called for an eight-year sentence.

Connor is expected to be sentenced later in the day.
