Police in Siaya County have arrested a middle-aged man accused of killing his wife on Tuesday.

The suspect, identified as Joel Masiye, allegedly beat up his spouse to death over reasons yet to be known.

The incident happened at the couple’s home in Mundeku Village in Butere, Kakamega County.

It is said Masiye returned home while drunk and picked a fight with his wife. So vicious was the confrontation that it led to the death of Masiye’s partner.

After allegedly killing his wife, Masiye boarded a bus to his sister’s place in Siaya Town.

However, the suspect’s sister handed him over to police after he confessed that he had killed his spouse.

Masiye is being held at Siaya Police Station, whereas the deceased was taken to St Mary’s Hospital morgue in Mumias.

Police say they are investigating the matter, and will arraign Masiye once the probe is complete.
