Ndambiri reportedly hit his 75-year-old mother, Grace Muthoni, with a blunt object and killed her instantly.

The suspect is said to have slashed his mother during a row over Ksh.6000 shillings which she allegedly declined to give him.

Neighbours who heard the commotion, went to the home and found the body of Muthoni lying in a pool of blood.

The body of the deceased was taken to nearby mortuary as the suspect is expected to be arraigned in court once investigations are completed.
