A police manhunt is underway for a woman who squeezed the life out of her stepdaughter, before conniving with her husband to secretly dispose of the body.

Police in Kibibi, Butambala district, got wind of the incident when a concerned resident alerted them that the body of a young girl, Rachael Kagere, 8, was being buried in secrecy.
