CHENNAI: The city police, who arrested a real estate businessman on suspicion of murdering three persons last year using lethal injections, have found out that he had tested the method on stray dogs before using it on  three persons with whom he had a strained relationships.

The three murders were passed off as suspicious deaths then. The accused had used a lethal injection filled with cyanide and attached it to an umbrella and casually poked on the persons whom he wanted to murder. 

“He initially tested the method on stray dogs in his area before hiring people to carry out the act to kill the three persons,” a police officer said. Stephen was arrested by the Neelankarai police on Wednesday for his suspected involvement in the deaths of three persons including his brother-in-law.

A burglary investigation in his house by the police led them to the revelations as the robbers turned out to be Stephen’s former staff who spilled the beans about Stephen’s plot and the way he executed the murders of three persons in 2015.
