A 35-year-old man from Kabutie Village in Kapsabet, Nandi County has been arrested for allegedly killing his wife, 29, after he allegedly busted her engaging in sexual activities with another man.
According to Nandi Central OCPD, Stephen Obara, the suspect, identified as Joseph Kiptanui, stormed the house of his neighbour, Hillary Kipkosgei, when he suspected that his wife was engaging in sexual activities with Kipkosgei, whom he suspected to be his wife’s lover.
Kiptanui allegedly busted the two in the act, before stabbing his wife severally in the chest and head, killing her on the spot.
Her alleged lover, Kipkosgei, attempted to escape but Kiptanui stabbed him too, seriously injuring him.
Kipkosgei was rescued by his neighbours before Kiptanui could inflict further bodily harm on him.
The body of Kiptanui’s wife was taken to Kapsabet County Referral Hospital.
Kiptanui is being held at the Kapsabet Police Station as investigation into his wife’s death continues.
