Nairobi - Residents of Gatunyu village in Gatanga sub-county, Murang’a County, Tuesday woke up in shock after a man stabbed his lover in the chest with a knife before escaping.
The victim’s aunt said the two have been fighting over domestic issues for a while and that last night screams were heard from the couple’s house.
“They have been fighting of late and he would beat her up every now and then. I think the last fight went overboard and the man stabbed her,” she said.
The deceased was identified as Joyce Njoki whose body was taken to Thika level Five Hospital mortuary.
Her aunt reported that three days ago the man had threatened to kill his lover.
Police said the man escaped to unknown destination and his manhunt has been launched
