Man murders wife as child watches

28 November 2012, 11:32 Wesley Gichugu

Residents of a village in Gilgil are in shock after a middle aged man went berserk hacking his wife to death as his three year old son watched.

Emotions run high in Eburru village after locals discovered the badly mutilated body of the woman.

Anger and fear gripped the sleepy town as police and members of the public launched a manhunt of the suspect who went missing after the attack.

According to a neighbor, the couple who had been married for over five years had on several occasions differed and even fought publicly.

“The two had differed over money and the man attacked the wife using a machete and fled away leaving her to bleed to death,” said a neighbour.

He narrated how the neighbours were woken by the cries of the minor and after inquiries they found the body under a seat.

Confirming the incident, Naivasha OCPD Charles Kortok said that a manhunt for the fleeing suspect had started.

Kortok also noted that initial investigations pointed to a domestic quarrel gone sour.

“We are treating this as murder and we are looking for the husband so that he can record a statement on what happened,” he said.
