Fifty-five-year-old Deogracioas Babweyoreka has been arrested for allegedly stabbing to death his 36-year-old wife Veneranda Nyinamisango in the western Uganda district of Rukungiri.
Basing on a close friend of the accused, Deogracioas called him after committing the offense and fled before he could be caught, however, his escape plan was cut short by the police arrest.
“The Police was notified and our officers visited the scene and recovered exhibits and started hunting for the suspect until he was arrested on Friday. Babweyoreka is currently in custody at Rukungiri Central Police Station as investigations into the matter continue,” stated Mr Elly Maate, the Kigezi Regional Police Spokesperson.
One of the area residents Mr. Benon Namanya disclosed that the couple had for long had a feud over money they received after sharing their piece of land which has finally resulted into this.
The deceased was even put behind bars on suspicion of stealing a sum of nine million shillings which was part of their earnings from the sale, however, no sooner had she been realized than the two got into a fist fight that claimed Veneranda’s life.
“She was discharged on Wednesday and when she went back to Babweyoreka’s home to pick her properties, they fought each other resulting into her death,” informed Mr Benon Namanya.
