Wife and lover shared secret diary before husband’s murder

A wife accused of murdering her husband kept secret diaries with her boyfriend prior to his death, where they revealed their forbidden love.

Sofia Sam and her lover Arun Kamalasanan faced the Supreme Court in Melbourne on Monday charged with poisoning 33-year-old Sam Abraham to death using cyanide in 2015.

Prosecutor Kerri Judd told the jury Ms Sam and Mr Kamalasanan started the shared diary in 2013. According to The Age, the pair have pleaded not guilty to the murder.

‘You know why I need this diary?’ Ms Sam, 36, is alleged to have written. ‘It’s a secret I will tell you later on.’

Other entries in the diary lamented that her life lacked the freedom she desired, and that ‘especially girls have to suffer always’.

The court also heard that Ms Sam also wrote love notes to Mr Kamalasanan; ‘I’m waiting for you’, ‘I miss you a lot’, ‘can you hold me tight?’ and ‘I want to drift away in your love’.

One entry read simply: ‘An idea without a plan is no more than a dream’ with a circle around it.

It has been revealed that Mr Kamalasanan kept an electronic diary of his own, in which he allegedly wrote: ‘I just need to love you until my last breath’.

Ms Sam and Mr Kamalasanan, 34,  are said to have become friends while studying engineering in India and remained in touch.

It is alleged that Mr Kamalasanan moved to Melbourne from India on a student visa to be with Ms Sam in July of that year, leaving his wife and son behind.
