Margaret, who died on February 10, this year, as a result of wounds inflicted by her brother, used to stay in Urauri area, Reha Ward, within Rombo District.

"I am deeply saddened by the loss of my mother, who was my guardian in life.

The chairman of Singa Kati hamlet, where both the deceased and the alleged killer originate, Mr Pantaleo Kileo, said that the alleged young man has been facing various allegations in his home area before the current incident in Rombo.
