In the process of separating two guys who were fighting, a man was stabbed to death in Kieni market in Nyeri County, central Kenya, on Wednesday.
Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said that Joseph Kagwe Wahome,26, tucked in the kitchen knife, which he brandished and squarely drove into the neck of the victim.
Startled witnesses rushed the victim to Nyeri County Teaching and Referral Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The preliminary report showed that Kagwe had stabbed his opponent in the belly before turning the killer knife to the deceased.
“Luckily, injuries on the first victim were not so serious, as he was treated at a local medical facility and discharged in fair condition,” said DCI.
The suspect was cornered and has since been placed behind bars pending his arraignment.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
