Police in Thika are looking for a woman who allegedly stabbed her husband to death using three knives during a domestic quarrel.
The woman, only identified as Wangari, is believed to have used a kitchen knife to kill Fredrick Mwangi Gitau.
Gitau, a caretaker at an apartment situated in Ngoiwa estate, was stabbed on Thursday night after a scuffle with the woman.
Neighbours informed police who collected the body on Friday after the mother of two – a former barmaid – fled.
Wangari left with her daughter whom they sired with the 30-year-old man. She also had a three-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.
Thika Deputy OCPD Bernard Ayoo told reporters that they found the blood-stained knives next to Gitau’s body.
The couple has been living together for a while until the time of their disagreement, police said.
