Uhuegbu was charged for killing the baby girl, Chimuanya Iwuagwu,
also from Odummara, Orodo, on May 17, 2009, in very bizarre
circumstances….continue.

Chronicling how the innocent suckling was murdered, Justice Okoronkwo
recalled that the deceased Chimuanya was heading to throw away refuse
with an elder relation and was accosted by the accused on their way.

The Judge agreed with the prosecution that “because the accused was
very familiar with the family of the infant girl, her relation had no
problem leaving the two and proceeded to throw away the refuse.”

Apart from believing the prosecution’s account, the Judge equally
ruled that since the little girl’s relation did not find the duo on her
return, it was for the accused to account for the baby that was left in
his care.

Justice Okoronkwo co quoted the confessional statement Uhuegbu made
to the police, especially how a mystery voice advised him to kill the
little girl if his life was to be better.
