A middle-aged man assaulted his wife with a sharp object and left her with savage injuries.
Maurice Natembeya then hanged himself upon learning that police were in hot pursuit of him. The couple are said to be frequent squabbles.
Martin Kapilo, a brother to the deceased said that it was not the first time he was assaulting his wife saying in June last year, he brutally injured his wife but he evaded arrest by hiding in sugarcane plantation.
‘’I have been advising my brother against his heinous behaviour of causing havoc at his home but he didn’t listen to me, see what has happened now is a shameful act, his wife is nursing injuries at Webuye district hospital,’’ said Kapilo.
His wife is in a comma and she could not address the press.
Area Assistant Chief Douglas Wanyonyi condemned the bizarre incident calling on married couples to solve amicably family woes or report such cases to authorities and stop taking law in their own hands.
