As per reports, the family of the four accused have not challenged capital punishment for them. According to TOI, the mother of one of the accused, C Chennakeshavulu, said that she could not defend her son's actions. 

Let him be hanged or set on fire like what they have done to the doctor. I have a daughter too and I know what the woman's family must be suffering. If I defend my son after knowing that he has committed a heinous crime, people will hate me for the rest of my life.
