A 28-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly strangling his wife to death and attempting to throw himself in a river.

George Marita reportedly committed this heinous act after his wife Dorcas Nyaboke confronted him of his whereabouts after he arrived home late Sunday night.

Speaking to Citizentv, Nyamage Assistant Chief Sarah Isaboke said the accused threw himself into River Kegati before passersby rescued him and called his brother who took him to his home.

“On reaching home, the brother was shocked to find Nyaboke lying on the floor in vomit,” said Ms. Isaboke.

The brother then raised alarm, causing neighbours to alert their landlord who in turn called the administrator leading to Mr. Marita’s arrest.

Mr. Marita is being held at Kisii Central Police Station pending investigations while the body of the deceased was transferred to the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital Mortuary.
