  I wish to highlight something in this regard.I do not consider myself to be an expert in all branches of learning, since I am just a student of XII. I have had a discussion in this regard with some scholars both from the north and south of India, many of them are of the opinion that "Uttara Kaanda" is not authored by Valmiki but added many years after the composition of Valmiki Ramayana. But they also add that they are yet to recieve substantial evidence in that regard.
  Hence I would say that this is something which may not be correct to say that a shudra was killed by King Rama since he was doing something without a formal instruction or something he was doing against the varnashrama dharma existing at that point of time.
