A man beat his daughter to death at Keti village in Nyang’oma, Kisumu County, for allegedly spending a night at her boyfriend's house.  

Another daughter is said to be nursing injuries following the Sunday evening incident.

The suspect was reported to have summoned the two children after they allegedly spent a night away without his permission.

The father reportedly attacked them using blunt objects. One of the girls lost consciousness and attempts to resuscitate her failed.

On realising the girl was dead, the father allegedly hid the body and dug a grave where he intended to bury the body secretly.

Deputy County Commissioner Erick Wanyonyi said law enforcers who got wind of the matter and arrested the suspect.

“By the time police officers and area chief got to his home, the suspect was in the process of burying the daughter,” said Mr Wanyonyi.

The police recovered the body and took it to Ahero Sub-County Hospital mortuary while the suspect was taken to Chemelil Police Station.

The deceased, a standard seven pupil at Nyalenya Primary School, was said to have sustained serious injuries on the head and abdomen.

Wanyonyi said the suspect will be arraigned after investigations.
