Police in Kenya are holding a 23-year-old woman over the killing of her roommate at a rented house in Ruiru.
The suspect was detained at Police Station yesterday when she went to report the death of her roommate.
The dead woman was identified as 22-year-old Jasmin Cherono. Officers who visited the rented apartment at Kihunguro area found Cheronoâ€™s body in a pool of blood.
Her right breast was missing. The police said that the body had other marks. A blood-stained kitchen knife, which the police believe was the weapon, was found in the house.
It had been placed on top of the kitchen table. Police’s Cyrus Ombati, said it appeared there was a struggle between the victim and her killers.
Police officers found empty beer bottles in the sitting room, an indication that Cherono and her killers were drinking alcohol before she was killed.
The killers are said to have taken the victim’s mobile phone. The suspect said she discovered the lifeless body of Cherono at around 1pm yesterday, since she did not spend the night in the house.
