A couple in Wakiso District has been arrested on allegations of killing their daughter during a domestic fight.
Denis Ssegujja and his wife Madrine Namala were arrested yesterday after neighbors tipped police that their daughter Maria Nasozi had been accidentally killed in their fight.
Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, said Ssegujja started a fight with Namala but during their scuffle, they trampled and fell on their two-year-old child who was on the ground and she died instantly.
Onyango said the couple that lives at Kiziba Cell, Masuulita Ward, Masuulita Sub County, were arrested by police to explain circumstances that led to the death of their child.
Mr. Onyango Speaking;…..
The couple’s home was visited by a team of police officers and detectives who since slapped murder charges against Ssegujja who reportedly started the fight.
Detectives transported the body to Mulago City mortuary for post-mortem.
Police preliminary findings indicate that the couple has been having domestic problems for a long time without resolving it and Ssegujja allegedly threatened to kill his wife and the children, Onyango said.Ends .
