GULU Chief Magistrate Tom Chemtai on Wednesday sentenced a primary school teacher to 15 years in jail for strangling her step-son, writes Chris Ochowun.

Teddy Ajok on December 26, at Anaka trading centre in Gulu district, killed Emmanuel Onen, 13, a pupil of Negri Boarding Primary School. She was charged with manslaughter.

Ajok, a teacher at Anaka Central Primary School, pushed Onen’s body under her bed before fleeing to her sister in Bombo, where she was arrested by the Police and brought back to Gulu for trial.

Chemutai said, “It’s regrettable that the victim died at a young age. He was about 12 years old.

“If this case had been investigated properly by the Police, the accused should have been charged with murder. I have taken into account the mitigating factors raised by the defence counsel.

“However, this is a very serious offence, where justice must be seen to be done. Accordingly I sentenced the accused to a jail term of 15 years.”
Ajok is jailed at Gulu central prison.
