Bizarre Moment as Middle-aged Man Kills His Two Stepbrothers Over Land Dispute

The frequency at which violent homicides are being reported has become unnerving among families and law enforcement agencies in recent months.

What started as an ordinary argument between siblings quickly escalated and got out of hand as suddenly as it began. 

Police in Meru are holding a middle-aged man alleged to have killed his two stepbrothers after accusing them that they had allocated him a smaller portion of their ancestral land.

Stanley Ntarangwi killed Charles Kathongi and Joseph Mukaria in cold blood in Kithiari village, Meru County.

The incidents happened in separate dates.

The suspect alleged to have attacked Kathongi after accusing him of harvesting his trees while he was in jail.

Ntarangwi fled the scene after committing the crime.

While the family was making burial arrangements for Kathongi, the suspect reportedly waylaid Mukaria on a tea farm and slashed him to death.

Angry residents who were baying for his blood, stormed his home and set his houses on fire.

While in Court, the suspect claimed that his children had been chased away from their home and exposed to danger.

According to statistics, at least three people are killed in the hands of their family members every day.
