It was gathered that Josephine had conspired with Onyeka to murder her husband at Azuiyiokwu in Abakaliki, the state capital, in 2008 because he told her he wanted to take another wife and building a another house for the new wife.

After they had perfected their plans, Josephine and Onyeka butchered the deceased and kept his parts inside a cupboard.

While delivering judgement, Justice Benson Ogbuh, found the accused guilty of the offence and duly sentenced them to death by hanging.
