Ugly scenes as a man is stabbed to death by neighbour

A man has been arrested in Bomet County over manslaughter charges.

The suspect, Evans Mutai, who owns a shop at Sibaiyan location was arrested after he stabbed Festus Keter, 35, on the chest over Ksh 400 debt and went on to trade merchandise at his premises.

Directorate of Criminal Investigation George Kinoti said Keter owed the shopkeeper the money and that they had an argument over it.

“After being stabbed on the right side of the chest, Keter was left for dead outside the shop. A concerned villager who stumbled on the body of the deceased, informed detectives based at Chesoen police station about the incident,” Kinoti said.

Kinoti said the officers immediately rushed to the scene 10 kilometres away and conducted preliminary investigations into the murder.

A blood stained knife was recovered and kept as exhibit.

The body of the deceased was taken to Longisa hospital mortuary pending postmortem.

Mutai shall be arraigned in court Monday to answer to murder charges.
