An enraged husband on Sunday stabbed his wife to death after catching her cheating with a neighbor in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet County.
Confirming the incident, Keiyo North Sub-County Police Commander Tom Makori said that Solomon ultimately killed his wife using a kitchen knife.
Solomon Kiplimo, 27, traveled 350 kilometers from Nairobi to Iten to commit the heinous crime after getting wind that his wife was cheating on him with a neighbor.
Solomon traveled to Iten on Sunday June 13th to confront his cheating wife after being informed of her affair with a man who named Dan Mwangi.
It is believed that Mwangi, who is on the run, would at times visit her in their matrimonial home.
When the suspect arrived home, his wife was missing and the neighbors showed him where she was with her lover.
He then proceeded to Mwangi’s home where he stormed into the house and found his wife in bed with him.
An enraged Solomon attacked the cheating pair, Mwangi managed to escape and left the poor woman to be attacked by her husband.
“In the wee hours of Monday morning, he stormed Mwangi’s house in Kapsho Estate and found his wife in bed with the man. He, immediately, began assaulting the two. Mwangi, however, escaped. The suspect, thereafter, whipped out a kitchen knife and stabbed his wife multiple times in the stomach and chest,” Makori told the press.
“Neighbours allegedly told him that while he was away, his wife was living with her suspected lover in his house. That’s was why he traveled from Nairobi to Iten; to confirm or dismiss his neighbours’ allegations.”
The police boss further disclosed that Solomon voluntarily surrendered himself to Iten Police Station at 9:30 am on Tuesday and confessed to killing his wife.
Meanwhile police are also looking for Dan Mwangi to record a statement. Police Commander Makori however noted that he is not a suspect in the gruesome murder.
