A JILTED fiancé stabbed his ex to death a day after she dumped him.
Jigukumar Sorthi, 23, knifed Bhavini Pravin, 21, four times at her home.
During the frenzied attack, her mum begged him to kill her instead.
A court heard Bhavini called off her Hindu arranged marriage to Indian Sorthi amid concerns over his drinking.
He fled in March but later handed himself in to police in Leicester.
Factory worker Sorthi denied murder but was convicted by a jury at the city’s crown court.
He is in custody before sentencing on Wednesday.
Bhavini’s father Pravin Babu said in a statement: “Our lives have been shattered beyond repair. Only our faith and belief is keeping us going.”
