A man is in Police custody for clobbering his wife to death after he found her in a drunken stupor at a chang’aa drinking den in Ugenya’s Jera village in Siaya county.

Kevin Onyango, 34, is reported to have gone home yesterday evening after a long day at work and found his wife missing. He looked for her frantically, only to find her at a chang’aa drinking den heavily intoxicated.

“An infuriated Onyango descended on her with kicks and blows further immobilizing his 42-year-old wife Emmaculate Mayavi, who could barely stand on her feet,” the police said in a statement.

He then put her on a wheelbarrow and pushed her home, where she is reported to have developed complications and passed away during the night.

The suspect is currently in custody at Siaya police station, being processed for arraignment to answer murder charges.
