A twenty one year old Samoan man has been sentenced to death by the Supreme Court in Samoa for shooting dead a plantation worker earlier this year.
Fa'amau Taufete'e of Satapuala shot dead Anisi Naiele, who was 33, at the government owned Samoa Trust Estates Corporation at Mulifanua village.
The death sentence comes just four days after the trial started.
No death sentence had been carried out since Samoa gained independence in 1962.
The sentence is usually commuted to a life term, eligible for parole after ten years.
