A middle-aged woman from Kibingoti Village in Ndia, Kirinyaga County allegedly stabbed her husband to death after she found him talking to his ex-girlfriend.
James Mutugi Gakono was murdered on Monday at a cattle dip in his home.
According to the deceased’s brother John Mwangi, 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 has since fled to an unknown destination, later 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.
Police are looking for Gakono’s wife, who remains at large.
