Lwengo Police are holding a woman, her daughter and herdsman in connection to the death of her 60-year-old husband.
The suspects are Sophia Kobusingye, her daughter Fazirah Namatovu and the herdsman only identified as Muzeeyi.
The trio is accused of being behind the gruesome murder of Sheik Ahmed Kasumba, a prominent livestock trader and resident of Kyetume village in Lwengo Rural sub-county.
Concerned neighbours, who heard the scuffle inside the couple’s house, notified the village council authorities who dashed to the ill-fated home but by the time they entered the house they found Kasumba’s lifeless body lying in a pool of blood on the floor.
He had sustained wounds on the head, neck, and chest, which prompted the local leaders to invite the police.
Muhammad Nsubuga, the Greater Masaka Regional Police Spokesperson, says the suspects were picked up and locked up at Mbiriizi police station as investigations continue.
Nsubuga says that preliminary information shows that the couple has been embroiled in a feud after it emerged that Kasumba was planning to marry a second wife.
Nsubuga says the suspects face charges of homicide but the investigations will determine their fate.
