A 23-year-old man identified as Joseph Ayomo, has been arrested by Police in Kisumu for allegedly killing his step-brother’s girlfriend.
According to reports, Ayomo stabbed 21-year-old Beverline, a 300 level student of Hospitality and Tourism in Kenyatta University, to death on Wednesday at 3am in Migosi Estate.
The suspect also allegedly stabbed his 32-year-old step-brother, Evans Otieno, in the back and chest. Otieno was rushed to Avenue Hospital for treatment. Health officers at the facility say he is in a stable condition.
Central OCPD, Joseph Kiptum, who confirmed the incident said it remains unclear why the suspect killed his brother’s girlfriend.
Ayomo allegedly raped Beverline before killing her. He, thereafter, moved her body into a Toyota Noah car model, which belongs to Otieno.
Police, who arrived at the scene, towed the vehicle to Central post and thereafter moved Beverline’s body to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.
Beverline’s mother, Caren Atieno, (pictured) who lives in Kisumu, says she thought her daughter was in school, and was shocked to learn of her death.
