Woman stabs drunk husband to death after bitter quarrel over a meal

Police in Siaya have arrested a 21-year-old woman accused of killing her husband in Rarieda Sub-County following a fight over a meal.

Ms Judith Otieno is said to have stabbed her husband Ishmael Onditi, 32, multiple times in the chest with a kitchen knife in Owimbi village.

Assistant Chief Martin Jakoyo said the man had returned home drunk at 11pm and ordered his wife to give him food, which she had not prepared for lack of money.

The man then went into the kitchen and returned holding a knife.

“He came home drunk and started ordering his wife to give him food,” said Mr Jakoyo.

“He then went into the kitchen and came back with a knife with the intention of stabbing Judith, only for him to be stabbed.”

The administrator said the commotion attracted the attention of the Onditi’s older brother, who rushed to the house and found the man lying dead in a pool of blood.

“The brother then alerted officers from Aram Police Station, who arrested the suspect,” he said.

Rarieda OCPD Johana Chebii said the body was moved to Madiany Sub-County Hospital mortuary.
