“The woman was found lying on the floor bleeding heavily. She had been stabbed on her stomach with a kitchen knife and also had wounds on her wrist,” he said.
He observed that the man had attempted to commit suicide by hanging himself but the rope was too weak to hold his weight. “The suspect suffered slight bruises on the neck,” he noted.
The police boss said that the woman was taken to St Benedict hospital in Nyahururu while the suspect was locked up at Nyahururu Police Station.
