Man Arrested for Allegedly Killing Wife and Setting Body Ablaze in Nyandarua

A man is currently being held by police in Nyandarua on suspicion of brutally stabbing his lover to death, taking her body somewhere else and setting it on fire.

Titus Nderitu Gichohi, according to a police report, is accused of killing his lover at her home and then transporting the body to his home in Pesi village, Ndaragua constituency where he allegedly put the body on fire to destroy any evidence that would connect him to the crime.

The police report states that "an analysis of the sites indicates that the victim may have been murdered in her home and body taken to the secondary location where the suspect burnt it in an effort to destroy evidence."

Locals raised alarm that they had seen the deceased's automobile at Gichohi's House and police had initially considered the situation as an abduction case. Detectives were summoned as a result and when they arrived at the scene, they discovered the victim's body was burnt.

The suspect, who was purportedly caught by police in Kasarani as he tried to run, wasn't present at the scene at the time as explained by the Aberdare Sub-county Deputy County Commissioner, Charles Rukwaro.

The deceased's body has since been moved to Nyahururu Hospital in Laikipia County awaiting an autopsy.
