Shock as Nairobi woman brutally kills husband, two children then commits suicide
A 32-year-old woman on Tuesday hacked her husband and their two children to death before committing suicide at their home in Thome estate, Nairobi.
Confirming the shocking incident, area Nyumba Kumi chairman Geoffrey Mwangi Mugo says the couple was embroiled in recurrent domestic disputes, adding that the man aged 37 had several times reported to him about being beaten by the wife.
Last night, however, things took a tragic turn after the woman descended on the man with an axe and struck him to death. It is believed that the man was attacked while asleep, as he was found lying dead on the bed.
Using the same axe, the woman then killed their two children aged 14 and three years before hanging herself in the house.
The bodies of the four were found earlier on Tuesday in their house.
