LAMWO. A 40-year-old woman was on Saturday found dead with her neck broken in Lumura village, Padibe West Sub County in Lamwo District.

Achol’s body was found about 50 meters away from her home.
Police has so far arrested one person in connection with the murder.

“One of the victim’s children heard their mother crying out for help but they were helpless,” he said
In February this year, a 7-year-old girl only identified as Aparo was sexually abused and later killed by a suspect believed to be her mother’s lover.
Still in January, a woman was allegedly killed by her jilted lover over disputed family property.
