On Tuesday, March 7, Amos Njuguna, a successful businessman in Nakuru, reportedly stabbed his wife, Winnie Chepkurui, to death at their home in the Zakayos estate.
After killing his wife, Njuguna contacted his son who was in college to inform him of the news before leaving the scene.
The couple had three children together.
Neighbors reported that Njuguna had recently beaten his wife, and police found evidence of a struggle in the couple's home.
Ms. Chepkurui had been stabbed multiple times, with seven stab wounds discovered on her stomach, chest and face.
Her body was found covered with covers in the bedroom.
Despite Njuguna's attempt to deceive others about his wife's whereabouts, her body was eventually discovered by friends who had come to check on her.
Njuguna had visited a friend's house and left his cellphones and vehicle keys with her, claiming that he and his wife had been attacked on their way home from Mau Narok.
He later told another friend that Ms.Chepkurui was fine and had her come to the house to check on her.
It was only when they arrived at the rented home that the couple had been using that they discovered Ms. Chepkurui's lifeless body in the bedroom.
The friend who had been watching their younger son expressed disbelief, stating that she had never once heard the couple argue.
Njuguna is currently the primary suspect in the murder, and police are actively searching for him.
