Man kills wife over infidelity

15 May 2013, 15:45 Mwangi Karanja

A 20-year-old woman was butchered Tuesday morning at Chemiuron farm in Trans Nzoia County by her husband over infidelity allegations.

Confirming the incident, Kitale Police Boss James Mitugo said Bernard Ong’ale, 23, stabbed Delite Akinyi with a kitchen knife after a night-long confrontation.

“The deceased was killed by her husband of two years because he heard that his wife had been seen with another man on several occasions. That day at 4.00 am, neighbors were woken by a shriek and call for help but when they arrived she was already dead with blood spilling all over the room,” he said.

Mitugo said that that the suspect later surrendered to the area AP camp as residents were baying for his blood after learning that he was behind the merciless act.

“Fearing for his life, he gave in to the AP officers because area residents wanted to kill him. He is now under our custody,” Kitale OCPD added.

A friend to the deceased revealed that her friend was complaining about adultery allegations from her husband and they were always fighting.

The body was removed to Kitale district hospital mortuary.

The incident comes barely a year after another incident that left the County residents in awe after a banker killed his girlfriend and later dumped her body in a borehole where it was discovered by neighbours.
