Love triangle: Man sentenced for chopping woman, dumping body in latrine


A man was on Thursday sentenced to death for killing a woman over unrequited love in a suspected love triangle.

Isaac Kirugo Koomu is said to have murdered Jane Wanjiru Kagoya in 2008 in Gachie, Kiambu county.

He is said to have killed her then cut off her legs and threw them in a latrine. He also threw the remaining part of the body in a well at a school.

The two were family friends, although Ms Wanjiru had a boyfriend whom she had a son with.

Mr Kirugo was said to have been  jealous that the woman loved the other man.

After committing the murder, the man kept sending threatening text messages to Ms Wanjiru’s boyfriend and her family using her phone.

He is said to have attempted to commit suicide after the woman’s body parts were retrieved from the toilet and the well.
