Itembe Location Senior Chief Mr David Marusoi said that villagers were awoken by screams at midnight and when they rushed to the man’s home, they found the victim lying on the bed in a pool of blood. 

"The victim (name withheld) was rushed to Tenwek Mission Hospital by relatives. He was declared dead on arrival by doctors at the hospital," Mr Mardi told the press at the victim's home on Sunday afternoon.

SHARP OBJECT

"The suspect, who is the victim's wife, was arrested by the police a few hours after the man died," said Mr Marusoi.
