Police officers in Siaya County are holding a 34-year-old man said to have beaten his wife to death after finding her intoxicated at a chang’aa den in Ugenya’s Jera village.
The suspects, Kevin Onyango, reportedly returned home on Saturday evening, only to find his wife – Emmaculate Mayavi – missing.
He is said to have later found her heavily intoxicated at a chang’aa drinking den, upon which he descended on her with blows and kicks.
Onyango then allegedly put the then immobile 42-year-old woman on a wheelbarrow and pushed her home, where she died after developing complications.
The suspect is being held at the Sihay Police Station awaiting arraignment to face murder charges.
