Nairobi - A woman who connived with her brother and friend to kill her 18-month-old stepdaughter has been sentenced to death.
Elenah Nyambura was sentenced alongside her brother, Geoffrey Njuguna who helped recruit the killer, friend Peris Njeri who helped identify the victim’s home, and Kenneth Muriithi who executed the plan.
According to The Star, Muriithi was said to have received KES 80 000 from Nyambura to kill Sheila Wanjiku.
Sheila’s mother, Eunice Nyawira was Nyambura’s employee at Kariobangi before she eloped with her boss, becoming Nyambura’s co-wife, Citizen TV reported.
The girl died of severe bleeding from the stab wounds she suffered on the neck.
While issuing the judgment, the judge said the four were guilty of the murder and sentenced all of them to death.
