A middle aged man hacked his wife to death and burned her body after a domestic quarrel in Eldoret, before setting her body on fire.
Eldoret East OCPD John Owuor says the man has been arrested after the incident on Monday night.
Owuor said the suspect returned from the US last month, and had differences with his wife.
Speaking to the media, a neighbour revealed this is not the first time they have been involved in a fight.
“There is a time I saw them fight on the road when the man started beating the woman to an extent of pulling out her hair. I even asked myself how this two would survive as a couple.”
“He had cut her head off and her hands before he burned her body, it is a very sad thing.
Police say the man used a sharp panga to cut the woman all over her body after which dumped the body in a pit latrine within their compound.
