A 34-year-old Ugandan lawyer and human rights activist, Francesca Amony, has turned herself in to the police for the alleged murder of her husband, Dr. Joseph Etuk.
The suspect, a senior member of the Democratic Party (DP) and a former National Secretary for the DP Women’s League, presented herself to the Lacor police post in Bardege-Layibi division, Gulu city, after she allegedly stabbed her husband, a medical doctor, to death.
The couple reportedly had a heated argument at their home in Keyi ‘’A’’ Cell in Kabedpong Ward, Gulu City on Friday, October 28, at around 11 p.m.
Amony allegedly picked up a knife and stabbed her husband, who died on the way to Gulu Regional Referral Hospital. After the incident, she reported herself to the police for alleged murder.
An old Facebook post of the deceased husband, celebrating his wife and hailing her as a hero, is currently making the rounds online.
Late Etuk took to his Facebook page on June 9, 2022, to declare his undying love for his wife, who ended up allegedly killing him.
In the post, the doctor said he would love Amony to his dying day and noted that he couldn’t have asked for a more supportive wife.
“In this life I couldn’t ask for more you have been there for me though thick and thin when I was sick u slept in the hospital without a second thought, through my weaknesses you stood by me and how you cry my only son may God bless u and grant u everything u ever wanted in this life. I will love you to my dying day”. The post read in part.
