Kayunga.

Shock gripped residents of Kinyara village, Nazigo Sub-county in Kayunga District on Wednesday night when a man beat his wife to death for allegedly denying him sex.
The district police commander, Mr Bob Kagarura, identified the deceased as Rose Nanjala, 33, who left behind an eight-month-old baby.

According to the suspect’s brother, who is also a neighbour, the couple spent Christmas day in a bar drinking and retired home at around mid-night.
At around 3am, the suspect allegedly asked his wife for sex but the wife reportedly turned down his request.

He reportedly pounced on his wife and kicked her until she collapsed. He reportedly went to the brother’s home, and informed him that he had beaten his wife into comma.
When his brother told him that she had actually died, the suspect then handed himself to police for fear of being lynched by residents.
