Egerton student stabbed to death by boyfriend
A fourth year student at Egerton University in Njoro was on Friday night stabbed to death by her boyfriend who was later lynched by members of the public after a quarrel.
The incident happened in Njokerio market near university’s main campus. The deceased had a three-month-old son with the man suspected to have killed.
According to sources, the suspect, who has been identified as Hilary Musisi, used to work within the market.
A neighbour who spoke to Nairobi News said the two started quarreling when the man came back home at around 8pm. The quarrel turned physical before the man is reported to have fatally stabbed the victim in their living room.
After the incident, the man locked himself up in the house but a crowd that had gathered outside broke the door and dragged him out where they stoned him before the police came to his rescue.
The man was then rushed to Nakuru Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
James Kibaya, a student at the University and a neighbour of the deceased couple, said the two used to fight frequently in the middle of the night.
The couple’s three-month-old boy is now in the hands of a neighbour who said they are waiting for the next of kin to come and pick him up.
