A middle aged man was arrested on Tuesday morning at Tuwani estate in Trans Nzoia County for defiling his 11 year old daughter.

She alleged that the accused had just been released from jail after he was sentenced for stealing a motor cycle belonging to his employer.

She further said that he send away his wife who is a mother of four - two boys and two girls - claiming that she was unfaithful.
