Twenty seven- year-old David Angolere, a resident of Lobok village in Napak district has earned himself a life sentence for murdering a minor.

Justice Stephen Mubiru handed Angolere a life sentence in Moroto High Court on Wednesday after finding him guilty of strangling to death seven-year-old, Juliana Lochan.

During the hearing, prosecution led by the Moroto Resident State Attorney, Gerald Amalo told court that on March 26th, 2015 while at his home, with malice aforethought, Angolere strangled Lochan to death.

He later discarded off the body in Nakwaarasi water pond, a few meters from his home.

It's alleged that Angolere was bitter with the deceased's father Peter Akwang Okiria, whose pigs were destroying his cassava garden.

Prosecution presented an affidavit sworn by Teresa Ngiro confirming that the accused has sworn harm a person or animal from Okiria's that trespasses in his garden.

In his judgment, Justice Stephen Mubiru said he was satisfied with the evidence presented by the prosecution. He noted that he was inclined to Angolere to a live sentence because his crime attracts a death penalty given the fact that the victim is a minor.
