A love triangle turned deadly in Munyuki Village in Lugari Constituency, Kakamega County after a man was beaten to death by his wife’s lover.
Musa Harun was returning home in the wee hours of Monday, November 14 when he busted his wife having sex with the alleged lover in their matrimonial home before a fist fight ensued.
Upon realising he was being overpowered by Musa, the woman’s lover called his friends who rushed to Musa’s house and beat him to death.
Lugari OCPD Bernard Macharia said the woman’s lover carried Musa’s corpse to his house in an attempt to destroy the evidence by burning the body.
However, the suspect’s attempts hit a snag and he rushed to Lumakanda Police Station to report that he had accidentally killed a theft suspect who had attacked him in his house.
Police have arrested the woman’s lover and his three accomplices for murder. They will be arraigned once investigations are complete.
