Jilted man kills three relatives of estranged wife

15 February 2016, 20:58 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Police in central Uganda district of Mukono are holding a 27-year-old man who killed three relatives of his wife who had walked out on him.

The man has been identified as Allan Mukosi, a dealer in second-hand shoes.

Mukosi's wife fled to her parents' home claiming that he mistreats her. She reportedly said that he beats her whenever he comes home drunk.

According to criminal investigations officer, Bob Mwaya, last night Mukosi raided his in-laws' home and set it on fire. People who saw him fleeing from the scene of crime informed police.

''He locked his in-laws from outside, poured petrol inside the house through the ventilators then set it on fire,'' said Mwaya.

He added that those inside the burning house sounded the alarm and neighbors ran to their rescue.

Sic members of the family were reportedly rescued but three including a 7-year-old boy , 9-year-old girl and a 25-year-old woman were burnt to ashes.

Mukosi has been arrested and police are hunting for his friends suspected to have helped him commit the offense.

His wife was among those who survived with severe injuries.

All the injured have been admitted to Mukono hospital.
