According to neighbours it was known that the couple had problems therefore despite being sad about the murder they are not too shocked.

Forensic psychologist Dr. Oscar Githua said that passion crimes happen when channels of communication between couples fail and the inability to handle conflict in relationships.

He said that passion crimes are more prevalent with men because of lack of communication skills resulting in physical fights.
