Brian Bagyenda asked for forgiveness after murdering his girlfriend, Enid Twijukye in 2016, the High Court Criminal division heard on Monday.
The group appeared on Monday before the Criminal Division of High Court presided over by Justice Moses Kazibwe for the hearing of their case.
Mirembe told court that Twijukye was staying with her sister and brother in law in Bweyogerere. She however, says that she tried reaching her a few days before she lost her life but her number couldn’t go through. Mirembe told court that her daughter had a new phone with a purchase receipt in the name of Brian Bagyenda.
The two told court that when they went to Kira Road Police Station to record statements, they asked if they could speak to Bagyenda and were allowed. The witnesses told court that it was during this brief interaction that Bagyenda apologized for the murder of his girlfriend.
This prompted him to tie her legs with sellotape and increased the volume of the Television before suffocating her to death with pillows.
The case will return to court on December 19th, 2019 for further hearing.
