Police are holding a 15-year-old girl after she allegedly stabbed her 19-year-old boyfriend to death on Wednesday in Nairobi’s Lang’ata area.
The girl is said to have stabbed his boyfriend two times in the chest
Neighbours say they heard screams from the house and rushed only to find the deceased writhing in pain with blood oozing from his body.
According to them the two teenagers have been in a relationship with the girl frequently visiting the boy during the day—and while it remains unclear what prompted the deadly quarrel, witnesses say the girl confronted the boyfriend over a conversation with another girl.
Efforts to save the 19-year-old Form Two student were futile as he was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Mary’s hospital where he was rushed for medication.
Lang’ata sub county Police commander Gregory Mutiso confirmed the incident saying the teenage suspect is being held at Langata Police station for interrogation.
The body of the deceased was taken to City Mortuary pending an autopsy
