A man hacked to death his 19-year-old neighbour over suspected love affair with his wife in Mogotio, Baringo County.
After committing the crime the man reportedly turned to his expectant wife on Thursday evening leaving her with severe injuries.
The woman was rushed to Nakuru Level Five Hospital where she is nursing her injuries.
Following the horror attack, medics at the hospital terminated the woman’s five-month pregnancy.
“The woman was received in a very critical condition. She had facial injuries, swollen hands, legs and lost her pregnancy,” Dr Joseph Mburu, a medic at the facility, told The Standard on Sunday.
Mogotio DCI Otieno Nyamburu confirmed the assault saying the suspect was arrested on Friday.
“We had arrested the man in relation to death of Kipkemboi and we are also conducting investigations on assault case,” said Nyamburu.
Preliminary investigations into the incidents indicate the suspect attacked his victims with a machete and a club.
