NEW DELHI -- An Indian court on Tuesday found guilty four men accused of raping and murdering a 23-year old physiotherapy student on a moving bus in December, in a case that has sparked tougher laws, fast-track courts, public outrage and extensive soul-searching. The four, who face the death penalty, are scheduled to appear at a sentencing hearing Wednesday.
