Peter Muturi, who is said to be mentally unstable is said to have stabbed his wife several times before hitting her on the head using a blunt object.
According to Mathioya OCPD Pauline Mwangi, the suspect aged 60 kept the body in the house until Sunday morning when he went to a local church looking for his brother and told him what he had done.
He later tried to stab himself but was rescued and taken to Kiriaini mission hospital where he is currently receiving treatment under the watch of police officers.
“We have launched an investigation into the matter to establish the circumstances under which the murder was committed,” Mwangi said.
The body of the deceased was moved to the mortuary.
