Police are investigating a case where a 33-year-old engineer was allegedly stabbed by girlfriend in Umoja after a disagreement.
The suspect has since been arrested by police over the incident which sources say occurred on Sunday, May 10.
A police report says the woman was identified as the deceased’s girlfriend.
“The suspect of the murder, who is the girlfriend, was identified by the neighbours and immediately arrested.
The team proceeded to the residence at Umoja 2, and found a pool of blood on the sitting room. A kitchen knife was recovered at the scene,” part of the police statement read.
In a video that has been widely shared on social media, the suspect says she never intended to kill the boyfriend after a brief scuffle, adding she didn’t know how it happened.
“I don’t know what happened… he started beating me. A woman will take anything to defend herself. I took a cup and hit him with it… all I know is that he was hitting me..there was a knife on the table,” the suspect says in the video.
“We were just fighting… you are putting words in my mouth. I don’t know what happened,” she continues.
The victim’s body was taken to Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital mortuary.
