A man was on Sunday night killed after he was allegedly found defiling a Form Two girl at Bokimonge sub location, Kenyenya Sub County in Kisii.
John Ombongi Marege, is said to have left his wife in their house after a domestic quarrel, before going to his friend’s house in the neighbourhood where he met with the girl.
Confirming the incident, Area Chief Onesmus Onyambu said Mr.Ombongi and the girl locked themselves in the house.
He said Mr Ombongi’s wife told the father of the girl about what her husband had done, prompting him to rush to his house.
The father ordered the man out but he and the girl tried to escape through the window.
“They pursued the two but the girl disappeared into darkness. The man who was armed with a panga and a rungu tried to attack the girl’s father after realising that he had been cornered……but the girl’s father who was also armed with a panga responded faster,” said the chief.
The man died on the spot after suffering deep cuts on his hand and chest.
The father of the girl was arrested and put in custody as investigations into the matter continue.
