A woman was on Friday morning killed while attempting to separate her sons who were involved in a domestic row.

The incident is reported to have occurred in Kamuga/Komolo in North Kabwoch location in Ndhiwa Sub County, Homa Bay county.

According to the area Chief Samwel Awino, the deceased, identified as Pamela Onyango, was attempting to separate the suspect identified as Erick Ouma, and his younger brother who were fighting over oxen for ploughing.

“The two brothers were arguing over who owns the oxen before the argument got physical,” Awino said.

In the process of separating the two, the mother was allegedly stabbed using a kitchen knife by Ouma who left her in the cold as he returned to sleep in his room.

The administrator explained that the deceased succumbed to injuries as she was being rushed to a health facility in Rodi Kopany within Homa Bay town Sub County.

The suspect who sustained injuries during the fight is currently undergoing treatment at Ndhiwa Sub County hospital under tight security as he awaits trial.

The deceased was taken to the Manyatta Nursing home for postmortem.
