A somber mood engulfed Mlimani village in Lugari sub location, Lugari sub county after the body of a 49 year old woman was on Sunday found in her lover’s compound.
The body of Asha Angaya, who is a widow was found lying in the compound of Mr. Iddi Aluvekho, a widower who lost his wife about two months ago.
According to the deceased’s aunt Ms. Hawa Angaya, she received news of her niece’s death while in church and rushed to the scene where on examining the body she discovered visible injuries.
“It’s suspected my niece was assaulted to death, I have checked the body and discovered visible injuries,” said Hawa as she sobbed.
She said her niece has been in a love relationship with Mr. Iddi and her death might be as a result of love gone sour.
According to neighbours, Asha who was drunk, entered the compound at about 8:30pm shouting and later went silent before her body was discovered in the following day.
The incident has been bitterly condemned by the deceased’s appealing for thorough investigations to ensure those behind her murder face the full wrath of law.
Police officers visited the scene and on searching the compound they found clubs believed to have been used to assault the deceased to death.
Five people have been arrested in connection to the murder and are being held at the Lumakanda police station as they help in investigations before being arraigned in court.
The body was removed and taken to Chebaiywa mortuary for postmortem to establish the cause of her death.
