Butcher kills wife, hangs self

06 March 2014, 13:31 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A man in his late 50s has stabbed his wife to death and then hanged himself at Kiandere village in Tetu, Nyeri.

Isaac Kibaru, a butcher, hanged himself in his butchery after stabbing his lover about 500 meters away in the neighboring Kamakwa Estate.

Witnesses said that they saw Kibaru walking into his butchery on Wednesday evening where he locked himself up.

They said they never saw him leave the business premises, something that caused more suspicion especially after they received news that he had killed his wife.

Police officers broke the doors after locals reported that his phone was ringing yet no one was answering.

“He was in a jovial mood the entire day yesterday; I don’t know why he took his life,” said a resident who added that he was not aware of any existing differences between Kibaru and his lover.

Area OCPD, Steve Obara confirmed the incident saying that police are still investigating the matter.

The bodies were removed to Nyeri PGH mortuary.
