Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives has arrested a man in Kerugoya, Kirinyaga County, central Kenya, for the brutal murder of his girlfriend on Wednesday evening.
Kennedy Nyamu was seized by Kirinyaga based detectives last night after he savagely attacked 27-year-old Edith Muthoni, inflicting a deep cut on the back of her head.
According to Kerugoya referral hospital manager Norman Gitari, a well-wisher brought the deceased to the hospital in critical condition.
“His medical staff tried in vain to save her life, prompting the hospital manager to inform our officers based at Kerugoya police station.
Investigations were immediately instituted, leading to the arrest of the deceased's boyfriend as the key suspect into the murder most foul. The suspect led detectives to the location of the murder at Kianjege village, where they spent the better part of the night combing the scene for more clues into the heinous crime,” said the DCI.
The suspect is currently in custody, assisting detectives with investigations before being arraigned in court to answer to his crimes.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
