A 40-year-old man in Trans Nzoia County succumbed to injuries sustained during an argument with his sister at their home in Kwanza.

Daniel Kipketer and his sister Jane Chebor, 48, were reported to have engaged in a heated scuffle over an unestablished matter, that eventually escalated into a physical fight at their home in Soyimining “B” village.

According to DCI Chebor armed herself with a baton which she used to hit the deceased at the back of his head, ending his life in the process.

"The deceased did not appear to have any physical wound on his head after the incident but started bleeding from the nose and eventually landed on the ground, slowly thereafter succumbing to the injury," DCI said.

Sleuths in Trans Nzoia arrested Chebor and the weapon used to hit the deceased recovered at the scene.

The body of the deceased is awaiting postmortem at Kitale County Referral Hospital mortuary.
