A 27-year-old man identified as an IT intern has handed himself to the Police and has confessed to killing his 22-year-old girlfriend who was a Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) student in Oloitoktok, Kajiado County, Kenya.
The man admitted to stabbing his girlfriend, Miriam Chepchirchir, to death on Friday, October 22 after a heated argument in his apartment.
The suspect told police he arrived in Oloitoktok on Friday to visit his lover but they got into a heated argument and he stabbed her multiple times on the neck and chest.
The police accompanied the suspect to the murder scene, an estate called Kamukunji three kilometers away from the station, where they found the body of the deceased just as the culprit had described.
According to the police report, there were signs of struggle at the crime scene, where the men in blue also confiscated the murder weapon.
The suspect has since been transferred to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), while the body of the deceased has been moved to the Oloitoktok Hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem.
