[JURIST] A high court judge in Sri Lanka and his bodyguard were shot and killed Friday by an unknown gunman. The judge, Sarath Ambepitiya, was returning to his home when he was shot, but a motive was not yet clear for the killing. Ambepitiya was known for issuing long sentences, including a 200-year jail sentence issued in absentia for Tamil Tiger rebel leader Velupillai Prabhakaran for a bombing. Ambepitiya had also sentenced convicted drug traffickers and child molesters to life in prison. BBC News has more.
