One town, is however, outdoing them all given how many cases that are related to the number of young women who have been killed by their partners in unclear circumstances across the area in the past few months.
Iten Town was the subject of controversy a few weeks ago when Damaris Muthee, a long distance runner, was found stabbed to death in the house of her Ethiopian boyfriend.
This afternoon, according to reliable reports from Daily Nation Newspaper from Iten, a similar incident has just occured when a 38 year old lady by the name of Monica Jeptoo Komen, was found stabbed to death by her boyfriend.
The man, who is now in police custody, is identified as 36 year old Khadiri Manda who is said to have argued with the lady last night before he stabbed her.
Tom Makori, Keiyo North Sub County Police Commander, confirmed the incident, terming it very unfortunate that the lady had to meet her end in such a cruel way.
A blood stained kitchen knife was recovered from the scene of the crime by investigators and will be used in the case against the man who killed his lover.
The stabbing might have occured at around 9PM yesterday, with authorities claiming that neighbors alleged that the two had been arguing before the murder happened.
