A man allegedly hacked his wife to death after finding her in bed with another man in their matrimonial house on Saturday, April 6.
According to reports, the man identified as Julius Rotich from Kaplelach village, attacked his wife and allegedly killed her in cold blood after she attempted running away shortly after being busted.
Immediately after committing the offence, Rotich called Soin Chief Paul Cheruiyot and informed him what he had done.
“He called me and told me that he arrived at his home around midnight and found his wife known as Rachel with another man. A fierce fight ensued and the wife’s lover escaped. It is then that he hacked his wife severally before calling me to confess,” Cheruiyot said.
According to the administrator, the assailant surrendered to the police, with the latter recovering the machete the suspect had used to end his wife’s life.
The Chief said the suspect and the deceased were a troubled couple who regularly quarreled. Rachel’s body was moved to Kericho County Referral Hospital mortuary.
