Mother of 4 faces jail

Joshua Asrlo; 18/6/09

A housewide and mother of four who admitted to killing her abusive husband, a Correctional Service (CS) officer nearly two years ago, is awaiting a pre-sentence report on her matter. The pre-sentence report was to be made yesterday at the National Court in Waigani, however since her defence lawyer was leaving the firm he worked for and was not able to continue taking carriage of the matter, her case was brought forward to Tuesday for directions. The 37-year-old housewife, Yarambo Kuleko Liwa, from Southern Highlands, killed her allegedly busive husband of nearly 17 years, who was a warder at the Bomana prison. They had four children; two boys and two girls; the oldest now aged 18 and lived at Bomana CS premises until the death of the man.
