A 36-year old man accused of killing his wife and step daughter in Nwoya district two years ago has been set free by the High Court sitting in Gulu after prosecution failed to produce witnesses.
Walter Odoch reportedly killed his 20-year old wife Kawambe Scovia and her 4 months old daughter Yuwadi Kawambe on January 12, 2018 at Dok Aswa village in Lungulu Sub County, Nwoya District.
According to prosecution, the bodies were found dumped near River Aswa by someone who had gone to fetch water.
The State Prosecutor, Patrick Akoko told the court that all the witnesses who were supposed to appear in court did not turn up and their phone numbers were not recorded in their statements to the police.
The Lira Resident Judge, Justice Alex Ajiji while dismissing the case today said it would be reinstated if the witnesses turn up.
