RIP: What Man Gave His Nephew Before Stabbing Him to Death

Police in Baringo are investigating an incident in which a 23 years old man identified as Silas Kipkosgei stabbed his 4 years old nephew to death in Kilingot village.

The deceased was under the care of his grandparents. His grandmother was at the farm at the time of the cold blooded murder.

Silas allegedly lured the young boy into a death trap by giving him sweets and cakes. After the minor followed him, he stabbed him on the neck and back three times.

A village elder who confirmed the painful incident revealed that Silas' mother returned home from the farm and didn't see him in the compound. She called his name and he didn't answer.

She peeped inside the house only to see Silas sitting on the sofa drinking water next to a pool of blood. Efforts to convince him to open the door proved futile. She called police officers to the scene as villagers who were angered by the cold blooded act wanted to lynch him.

He was arrested and is currently being held at Kabarnet police station as investigations continue. The deceased's body was taken to Baringo county refferal hospital where a postmoterm examination is expected to be conducted.

Joshua Kandie, the village chief revealed that Silas had previously attempted to murder his brother during an altercation.

The painful incident came just weeks after Stacy Chemutai, a student at University of Eldoret was stabbed to death by her boyfriend following a fight on romantic issues. The boyfriend then allegedly tried ending his life but was rescued in time and taken to Moi Teaching and Refferal Hospital.

Incidents of cold blooded murders related to mental health issues have been on the rise in the recent past.
