Police in Kuresoi South are holding a woman suspected to be behind the death of a police officer attached to Kiptagich Police Station.

The deceased, David Kurgat, was found dead minutes after leaving the house of the suspect.

“We have arrested a female suspect who was with the police constable at her house on Friday night. His body was recovered minutes after they parted ways,” Kuresoi South Sub-county police commander Henry Nyaranga said.

The police boss revealed that the officer was reportedly in a love affair with the suspect.

He said that the body of the officer was found minutes past midnight by the roadside.
