A woman from Kibingoti Village in Ndia, Kirinyaga County allegedly stabbed her husband to death after she caught him talking with an ex-girlfriend.
The unidentified middle-aged woman stabbed and killed James Mutugi Gakono on Monday at a cattle dip in his home.
The deceased’s brother, John Mwangi, said he found Gakono arguing with his wife, and when he tried to intervene, the woman chucked a kitchen knife at him before stabbing Gakono to death.
The suspect who fled from the scene after the incident and remains at large, phoned Gakono’s sisters and told them that she had finally managed to kill her husband after several threats and previous unsuccessful attempts.
Gakono’s body was taken to Karatina District Hospital mortuary.
