Police in Vihiga County are in pursuit of a 30-year-old man who is suspected to have killed a 62-year-old woman over the weekend.
County police commandant, Sarah Duncan, said that the young man was cohabiting with the woman at Lugula village, Muhudu location in Hamisi constituency before the alleged incident occurred.
“On Saturday, the woman slept at the man’s house as she had the keys. When the man came at night with another woman, he asked her to give them space but she refused to leave,” said Duncan.
Initial investigations identified the woman as Joyce Chitoro, who was a regular visitor to the man’s house.
According to the neighbours, there was some commotion and then a fight ensued where the man hit the woman severally with crude weapons and later dragged her outside his house.
The woman succumbed to the injuries and died later at the same spot, and her body was taken to Vihiga District Hospital in Mbale by the police from Serem police station, awaiting postmortem and identification.
