A middle-aged man was stabbed to death following a dispute over a woman at Kapkwen market in Chepalungu Sub-county.
Neighbours said they were woken up on Saturday night by commotion from a rented room, where the woman was living with her lover.
“Apparently, the supposed husband arrived and found his wife with another man in the house. A quarrel ensued and quickly degenerated into a fist fight, with the man claiming to be the woman's husband stabbing his rival,” said Itembe Sub-location assistant chief Samson Ngetich.
Locals who responded to the distress call found the man writhing in pain on the ground, with a bloody knife still lodged in his torso.
