According to the report, Dr Ndolo gave the police, he was awakened by the cries of their two-month-old baby.
He discovered his wife was out of bed and when he called for her, she did not respond. He went to look for her in the bathroom and found her dead.
Ruiru OCPD Phineas Ringeerah said they got a report in the morning. When they got to the scene, they cordoned it off and took the body to the Kenyatta University mortuary.
