Decomposing body of woman discovered in Ruiru, male suspect in custody : Police
Barely a day after the nation was shocked from the gruesome murder of Catherine Nyokabi by his suspected boyfriend in Juja, Kiambu, police are investigating yet another murder of a middle aged woman in the same county.
Residents of Kambi Moto village in Ruiru were appalled after the decomposing body of a middle-aged woman was found inside a single-roomed rental house.
According to the police, the slain woman is reported to have been strangled to death a week ago.
Residents claimed that the prime suspect in the murder has been living with the body for almost a week as he was frequently seen entering and leaving the house.
They said that they only suspected of the brutal murder after a stinking smell started being smelt from the room.
According to Ruiru Sub-county police Commander Phineas Ringera, the woman is believed to have been strangled to death before the killer wrapped her body inside a nylon paper.
"The body has been moved to City Mortuary but we have the main suspect in our custody and who will help us with investigations," said Ringera.
