TRAGEDY Crime scene in Nakuru where a man killed his wife and locked the body in a room where their two young children were sleeping.
A Nakuru-based doctor is suspected of killing his two children on Sunday morning and attempting to kill himself.
The incident took place at the doctor's home in Kiamunyi Estate in the wee hours of Sunday morning.
It is alleged that the well-known doctor who also owns one of the best clinics in town injected insulin into the two children under the age of 10.
A neighbor who requested anonymity said he then injected the same drug but was rescued before it could have the desired effect.
Nakuru County Police Commander Beatrice Kiraguri confirmed the incident but declined to name the doctor until next of kin are informed.
She said the doctor was admitted to the Rift Valley Provincial General Hospital under high police security.
"We don't know what drug the children were injected with and this can only be confirmed by a postmortem examination on the bodies," she said.
She added that the case was being investigated to confirm whether it was the doctor who had committed the offense.
"The doctor's wife was not at the house at the time and was only called when the children were already dead," Beatrice said without specifying who called the woman of the house.
Kiraguri said police had to break into the house in an attempt to save the three, but the children had already succumbed.
A neighbor claimed the doctor took drastic action after he disagreed with his wife who allegedly wanted to travel abroad against her will.
The bodies were transferred to the Nakuru County Mortuary.
