Police officers in Kirinyaga County are holding a 48-year-old man who reportedly confessed to killing Mutira MCA David Kinyua Wangui’s mother-in-law.
Kirinyaga Central Police Commander Doly Odour said Francis Muriithi was arrested in his house after coming out of hiding.
The police commander said Muriithi even surrendered a bloody panga that he supposedly used to hack the deceased and was taken to the Kerugoya Police Station where he is being held.
The suspect is said to have attacked the deceased, 49-year-old Joyce Kaira Muthiru, on Wednesday last week at 7pm while she was preparing supper.
Ms. Muthiru was then rushed to the Kerugoya Referral Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
