Jane Muthoni Sentenced 30 Years In Jail Over Killing Her Husband

High Court sentences Jane Muthoni and co-accused Isaac Ng'ang'a to 30 years in prison for murder of Kiru Boys principal Solomon Mbuthi.

Jane Muthoni was found guilty of murdering her husband Solomon Mwangi in 2016.

Previously, Muthoni's daughter, June Muthoni, pleaded with the court to spare her mother custodial sentence and instead release her unconditionally.

Muthoni and Ng’ang’a followed the court proceedings virtually from their respective jails at Nairobi’s Langata Women and Kamiti Maximum prisons.

State Counsel Catherine Mwaniki had argued that the case met the threshold to have the two sentenced to death.

Men are suffering a lot due to the misuse of gender biased laws from women like Jane Muthoni. I think Men's Commission should be formed for protection and safeguard of men against misuse of rape laws, dowry laws,@namelook.

If you murder your partner for cheating, then end up getting a sentence of 30 years or life, who are the kids left with? Jane Muthoni not only broke the law, she broke her Family. @oumasarah.
