This is after a woman was hacked and burnt to death by her husband,45, after a domestic brawl.
The suspect who is yet to be identified by name has been arrested and is being held awaiting legal procedures.
The incident comes barely a week after a sub-chief was fatally stabbed by her wife in Kiamugumo Sub Location in the same constituency.
The chief was stabbed following wrangles believed to have been caused by coffee payments.
Dan Magu, 36, was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
