A Lusaka woman who was accused of killing her husband last October by driving over him with her car has been acquitted by the Lusaka High Court on lack of evidence.
Details of the case were that Jacqueline, a Health Care Administrator was accused of killing her husband Kofi Milumbe in October last year by running him over with a car after a domestic dispute on October 28, 2016.
High Court Judge Charles Chanda said the prosecution failed to establish prema-facie case against the accused as the case was full of speculation.
Jacqueline was accused of killing her husband Kofi Milumbe by running over him on October 28, 2016.
Judge Chanda said Jacqueline did not run over her husband but that he was run over by another speeding vehicle on the road.
Judge Chanda found that all the prosecution’s witnesses exonerated the accused and did not implicate her in any way.
“Based on the evidence before court and relying on the findings of the pathologist, I find that the deceased died as a result of the road traffic accident,” said Judge Chanda.
Jacqueline’s lawyer Abyudi Shonga had asked the court to acquit her because the prosecution had not established a prima facie case against her.
