Angry residents killed a woman who stabbed and seriously wounded her husband in Kirinyaga County.
According to NairobiNews Ms Mercy Ngangi was slashed to death on Friday night and her body set on fire at Mururi market.
The man had confronted his wife in their rental house, accusing her of being unfaithful. As the quarrel degenerated into a fight, the woman took a kitchen knife and stabbed her husband in the neck.
However, the man, identified only as only Peter, raised the alarm, attracting neighbors who rushed him to Kimbimbi Sub-County Hospital in a critical condition.
As news of the attack spread, the residents proceeded to the woman's house baying for her blood but she escaped, with the mob in hot pursuit.
