Masaka | The territorial Police in Greater Masaka and Ssembabule district have arrested Kyeyune Aloysius, 66, for killing his wife.
Kyeyune is a peasant of Kyambogo village, Nyabitanga sub-county in Sssembabule district.
According to Police spokesperson SCP Fred Enanga, the suspect allegedly murdered his wife, Nassazi Glades, 40, by hacking.
His (Kyeyene’s) decision to kill was the denial of conjugal rights and cheating, adds Enanga, revealing that the incident happened on August 8, at around 4 pm.
“The couple has been having a toxic relationship and sleeping in separate rooms. On the fateful day, the suspect picked a hoe and hit the victim on the head, killing her instantly.
“The motive of the killing was established to be jealousy, after the suspect accused his wife of denying him, his conjugal rights and cheating on him, with other men in their marital home.
“We continue to strongly condemn such marital murders. The victim died in a violent manner after she was hit with a hoe on the head. We cannot tolerate such violent acts in relationships and the wider community, SCP Enanga said.
