A 45-year-old man has killed his wife after setting their house on fire while the wife was inside following a domestic dispute.

Millicent Ochuka, the  DCI boss in Gichugu, confirmed the incident happened at Kithima village home in Gîchûgû Constituency, Kirinyaga County.

“The suspect has been arrested and is being held at Kianyanga police station,” Ochuka said.

James Wachira is said to have engaged his wife in a fight before overpowering her, hacking her and then locking her in their house.

Wachira is then said to have used petrol to set the house on fire.

According to an area resident, members of the public heard the woman scream in pain while fire was gutting the house that she had been locked in by the husband.

“They had fought earlier before the man attacked her with a panga. He then locked the house and set it on fire. We could hear her scream but after a while, her screams faded out,” said a resident only identified as Purity.
