A 28-year-old man has poisoned his wife, and friend, then fled.
Sebastian Kamande left their lifeless bodies on the floor on Tuesday.
“In yet another cold blooded murder involving fighting couples, Sebastian Kamande, 28, served poisoned food to his wife Rahab Gathoni and her friend Abigael Gathoni, who had come visiting, before fleeing their Dandora home,” the police confirmed in a statement.
The suspect was arrested in Embu, and transfered to Dandora police station.
“Preliminary investigations indicate that the couple’s relationship had run its course and efforts by the man’s parents to assist them rekindle the dying ambers of their once blissful union had hit a dead end,” the police said.
The detectives established that last weekend, the couple had been invited by the man’s parents in Kakuzi, Murang’a Countyto salvage their union.
“But when they returned to their home in Dandora, the man’s wife who had since received a visitor declined to cook, prompting the disgruntled husband to venture into the kitchen. It is during the preparation of the evening meal of rice and stew that the suspect laced it with an unspecified poison and served the two women before fleeing,” the police said.
According to the police, the suspect will be arraigned on Monday for the twin murders of the two women, contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the Penal Code.
