A woman who was alleged to have stolen chicken was killed by an irate mob in Micha village on the fringes of Nyeri town on Tuesday evening.
According to members of public, the mother of two has been a nuisance to the villagers since she was even stealing household items and food stuffs from them.
They claimed that she was not married and lived singly.
They caught her red handed in the poultry house stealing chicken from her immediate neighbor.
She managed to escape but the angry residents pursued her at her home and rowdily descended on her leaving her bleeding profusely at the road side.
Residents claimed that the deceased was behind a trail of theft cases in the village and she had been warned severally.
Area police boss condemned the mob asking locals to be reporting such cases to police instead of taking law into their hands.
