One woman in Nakuru is accused of burning her neighbour's daughter to death. The Court found her with a case to answer after setting the innocent girl ablaze. Justice Hillary Chemitei said that there was enough evidence against the lady who was identified as Agnes Omuyoyi.

Witnesses affirmed that Omuyoyi tied the six-year-old, soaked her with paraffin and set her on fire after an argument with the child's mother.

Omuyoyi reportedly burnt Melvin Akinyi at Kwa Rhonda informal settlements in Nakuru West. The judge said the court scrutinized five witnesses' proof before arriving at the decision.

The investigating officer, Judy Nyakira, affirmed that Akinyi was killed after the conflict between her mom Irene Odhiambo and Omuyoyi over Sh4,000. Irene had allegedly said that Omuyoyi stole her Sh4,000. Omuyoyi was found with Irene's lost shirts.

Nyakira told court Omuyoyi turned her indignation on Akinyi after being levelled thief. Omuyoyi is said to have gone to Odhiambo's home and found three kids, forcibly caught Akinyi and poured paraffin on her then set her on fire. Akinyi lost her life on the spot.
