Road Contractor, 50, Jailed For 40 Years For Hacking Wife To Death And Dumping Her Body In Toilet

A 50-year-old road contractor jailed for 40 years for hacking his wife to death and dumping her body in a pit latrine in Kisii County.

The suspect showed up before High Court Judge Rose Ougo on Tuesday, George Morara and was charged with gruesome murder.

It was tabled in court that in 2019, Morara killed Jesca Moraa at Rioma village in Marani sub-county before throwing her body in the toilet.

"If we free you will be a problem to the locals, you are a dangerous culprit and you caused a great loss to your family and to the society. You should be sentenced to life imprisonment," read a report provided in court by investigating officers.

During the judgement, the defence team headed by Shaffin Kaba noted that the suspect suffered a terminal illness and that he had changed.

“A bright mind was cut shot, (the accused) suspect made his family suffer emotionally to the woman and dumped her body in a toilet,” ruled Justice Ougo.

The court established that there was no evidence that the road contractor suffered a terminal illness, adding that non-custodial jail term was can't suit the suspect.
