A 21-year-old man who allegedly killed his wife by hacking into her Facebook account for allegedly flirting with male acquaintances is being held by police in Bomet County.
According to reports, after his 25-year-old wife returned from attending college, Ismael Kingeno Langat attacked her with a panga.
The suspect added that he had advised the dead against flirting and that he had sold a plot of property to pay for the woman’s education.
The suspect also made an attempt to assassinate his father, who had gone to the scene to find out what was going on but narrowly escaped after dodging the panga-wielding son who was baying for his blood, according to Makimeny Location Chief Francis Mwei.
After committing the horrible deed, the culprit turned himself in at Makimeny Police Station while carrying a Panga covered in blood.
The head of Chepalungu Police Panton Analo reported that the deceased’s body had now been sent to the mortuary at Longisa Referral Hospital.
