Police in Kisumu have arrested a man for allegedly killing his wife in a domestic quarrel.
Nyakach subcounty police commander Daniel Chacha said the suspect was arrested at Bliss Medical Centre in Kisumu on Tuesday.
The suspect allegedly attacked the wife, a teacher in Nyakach, using a panga and causing her multiple severe injuries on Monday night.
“We received reports from the school principal that one of his teachers had been attacked at her residence,” Chacha said.
Chacha said the suspect had visited the wife at her residence before a domestic quarrel ensued.
“The preliminary reports from the house help indicate that the suspect had traveled from Nairobi to visit them,” he said.
The police visited the scene and found the deceased had been rushed by her friends to Katito medical hospital.
The police boss said the deceased was then referred to Bliss Medical Hospital in Kisumu where she was pronounced dead while on treatment on Tuesday.
Chacha said the suspect was in police custody with investigations into the matter ongoing.
