High Court judge Justice Munamato Mutevedzi has sentenced to death Tapiwa Makore Snr and Tafadzwa Shamba for the murder of a Murehwa boy Tapiwa Makore Jnr three years ago.
In sentencing the two Justice Mutevedzi said the duo showed no morality and behaved like animals.
He said their objective to kill a hapless boy showed that the murder was premeditated.
"The accused person forced their victim to drink an illicit brew. In this case the accused drunk the victim and in reality the accused persons poisoned the victim into a comatose,” Justice Mutevedzi ruled.
