A man allegedly killed his estranged wife before committing suicide in Kibwezi East, Makueni County.
Area assistant county commissioner Vitalis Ogur said Nzyuko Makau and his wife, Ann Makau, were casual labourers at Dwa Sisal Estate.
Ogur said the two were headed to work when Nzyuko allegedly slashed Ann with a machete before hanging himself.
The motive of the attack is yet to be established.
"The incident happened in the wee hours of the morning as the two were headed to work," said Ogur.
One of the deceased's neighbours said the couple had family issues and were living in separate houses.
"The couple had four kids. At the time of the incidence, they had parted ways," said Urbanus Kioko, a resident.
The bodies were taken to Makindu Sub-County Hospital Morgue.
