Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) , have arrested 30years old James Kifo Muriuki who alleged dehumanised his wife, Charity Wairimu on May 16, 2020.
Reports revealed that the suspect ordered his wife to strip naked and confess to him all the men she had slept with while he was away in Nairobi.
He then added pepper, salt and onion in his wife’s private part using a sharp knife, when she hesitated, before applying superglue mixed with sand to seal it off. Then he lured her in the dead of the night to River Kathita.
According to Citizen Digital, the suspect committed the act while their 3 year old son was watching and it was the voice of the boy when screaming that alerted the neighbors who came and rescued the woman and rushed her to the hospital.
The suspect has been arrested on Thursday morning (today) after he was apprehended from his hideout at Kaningo in Kitui County by a combined team of DCI detectives from Special Crime Unit, DCI Tseikuru and DCI Tharaka South.
Muriuki is expected to be charged once all the necessary police procedure are complete.
