Detectives attached to Directorate of Criminal Investigation have arrested a couple after they allegedly killed their 8-year-old daughter during a domestic fight at Majengo estate in Kilgoris, Narok County.
According to DCI’s report, Amos Maengwe, 30, attempted to hit his wife, Esther Kaiseyi, 21, with a wooden object but missed the target ending up hitting their daughter.
They immediately stopped their fight and together carried their daughter to hospital for medical attention.
“Along the way, they were stopped by police officers on the beat who owing to the condition of the little girl who had a deep cut on her head, rushed them to nearby Kilgoris sub-county hospital to help save the life of the minor. She was in critical condition,” stated DCI.
Upon arrival at the facility, doctors tried to attend to the girl whose condition had worsened, but unfortunately she lost her life while undergoing treatment.
The two parents are currently at Kilgori’s police station, as detectives finalize their investigations before arraigning them in court.
