Police in Matungulu are investigating the deaths of a young couple, whose decomposing bodies were found in a room in their rented house at Nguluni trading centre.

Matungulu police boss Joel Kirui said the decomposing bodies of Stephen Mumo, 24, and Miriam Anna, 18, were found at 9 am on Wednesday by a neighbour.

The police boss said the neighbour became suspicious of a foul smell which was coming from the couple's house.

Mr Kirui said a preliminary investigation showed that the woman, whose  body was found lying on a bed with some injuries, may have been strangled by her man before he hanged himself using a mosquito net.

He said the two moved into the house recently.

The bodies were moved to Kangundo Level Four Hospital mortuary.
