On Thursday, 18-year-old Brendah Atuhaire, who was three months along in her pregnancy, was found lying in a pool of blood with a knife next to her in a house in a city in Western Uganda.

Two publications, the Face of Malawi and The Daily Monitor reported that her unnamed boyfriend allegedly stabbed her to death after she refused to abort.

“According to residents of Bukwali village, East Division where the incident happened on Thursday, the couple has had several fights as a result of misunderstandings since the virus-induced lockdown was announced by the president,” Alex Ashaba reported.

Vincent Twesige, the spokesperson for the Rwenzori West Police,  “said the suspect was found trying to commit suicide” and that “he has been admitted to Fort Portal regional referral hospital,” according to Ashaba.
