A 29-year-old woman has been arrested in Umoja after she stabbed her 33-year-old boyfriend to death.

Edward Okello, an aeronautical engineer at JKIA and his girlfriend Vigilance Shighi had an argument before the incident.

The matter was reported to the Buruburu police station at around 8.30PM on Sunday by an officer attached to IEBC’s Wafula Chebukati.

Okello was reportedly rushed to the Mama Lucy hospital bleeding profusely where he succumbed to his injuries while receiving treatment.

Thereafter, officers from the Buruburu police station visited the scene of crime where they discovered a pool of blood believed to be Okello’s in the living room.

A kitchen knife believed to have been used as the murder weapon was also recovered at the late Okello’s house.

The suspect who was identified by the neighbours after the incident has since been arrested and is in police custody.
