‘Bikini killer’ Charles Sobhraj convicted for American woman’s murder

Charles Sobhraj,a Frenchman dubbed the “bikini killer,” has been found guilty of the murder of American tourist Connie Jo Bronzich in Kathmandu, Nepal, in 1975.

The Nepal supreme court upheld the life term awarded by a district court in 2004.

Connie Joe Bronzich was stabbed repeatedly and her body, burned almost beyond recognition, dumped on the outskirts of Kathmandu.

Sobhraj, born to Vietnamese and Indian parents but of French nationality, has been linked to the deaths of at least 12 young backpackers across Asia in the 1970s. He was previously convicted in India where he served 21 years in prison. He was eventually released and returned to live in France.
