The police in Elgeyo-Marakwet County apprehended a 27-year-old man, who stabbed his wife after he caught her red-handed with another man.
Solomon Kilimo has been allegedly traveling from Nairobi to Iden on 14 June with only one objective to corroborate his 23-year-old wife’s claims of having a neighbor’s affair.
Sources said K24 Digital that an irate Kiplimo asked neighbors where a guy, a Dan Mwangi who had supposedly chewed his wife, resided after he didn’t find her at home when he arrived.
Kiplimo reportedly rushed and attacked Mr. Mwangi’s home, where he discovered the two.
Mwangi escaped, but the wife was not lucky since a kitchen knife had wounded her numerous times. She died of the wounds.
Keiyo North Sub-County Police Commander Tom Makori said that the police were detaining Mr. Kiplimo, who, having committed the atrocious deed, surrendered at the Iten police station.
We previously initiated an inquiry into the Kapsho Estate incident. He reportedly discovered the two in bed and began assaulting them with a knife that immediately killed his wife,” Makori told K24 Digital on the phone.
Medical records show that the woman has succeeded in suffering many knife wounds to the stomach, chest, and neck.
Makori said that they were also seeking Mwangi to record an incident statement shocking local residents.
Police who appeared on stage transferred the body to the mortuary of Iten County Referral Hospital for a postmortem examination.
