Masindi DHO Murder: Wife arrested

By Davis Mugabi

The Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) of Police has in custody the wife of murdered Masindi District Health Officer (DHO).

Betty Cherotic was arrested following the brutal murder of her husband, Dr. Jino Abiriga.

The incident occured on Saturday.

Police Spokesman Fred Enanga confirmed the arrest.

He explained that on Saturday morning, Dr. Abiriga left home for a friend’s wedding. His driver returned him home at 8:30pm. At 10pm, he and his wife Cherotic entered their bedroom.

However, his body was discovered outside their gated house in Masindi town.

Detectives traced blood back to the bedroom. Blood was also discovered under the bed, a sign that Dr. Abiriga could have been killed from the bedroom. However, Cherotic claims that the blood was hers, given that she is in her monthly periods. 

Enanga says that the CID is investigating whether Dr. Abiriga was murdered from his bedroom or tricked and taken outside his gate and murdered.
