`Witch Finder’ Linked To Murders

Police arrested a self-proclaimed “witch finder” Friday who is accused of killing 15 people by making them drink a poisonous herbal mixture.

Munyeme Siamuchanga, 30, admitted giving the mixture to people he suspected of being witches to test their innocence, police said.

Police said villagers asked Siamuchanga to rid their area of witches.
