In an act of domestic violence, a 110-year-old man in western Uganda district of Ntungamo district, has allegedly murdered his wife aged 109 years by repeatedly stabbing her with a machete after she refused his request for sex.

Early the next morning, their 10-year-old great-granddaughter heard Dominic’s threatening to kill Bakasisa if she did not comply.
“When she peeped into his room, she saw him armed with a machete. He then entered Bakasisa’s room and began stabbing her repeatedly, “police said.
Neighbors alerted by the child’s screams found Bakasisa dead upon arrival. Dominic was found unconscious in his room with an agro chemical bottle nearby indicating he had taken poison,and was rushed to Itojo hospital for treatment.
The police statement confirms the recovery of the murder weapon and the deceased’s body being subjected to a postmortem. While preliminary investigations cite denied conjugal rights as the motive, a thorough investigation is ongoing.
