Police officers in Tinet, Nakuru county, have arrested a 25-year-old woman on suspicion of murdering her four-year-old child.
According to eyewitnesses, Faith Chepkorir murdered her daughter and dumped her body in a pit latrine at the Kapno centre in Kuresoi south on Tuesday.
According to Stephen Korir, a village elder in the region, the suspect initially denied knowing where her daughter was, but later led the villagers to the site where the body had been dumped.
She allegedly refused to confess to the crime until the body was recovered from the 7-foot latrine.
According to the villagers, the suspect recently separated from her husband due to unspecified family issues.
Several photos obtained by Citizen Digital showed the suspect with her head bowed and her hands tied behind her back as locals awaited the arrival of local cops.
Other photos showed the four-year-old girl’s body wrapped in a shawl, in an incident that has shocked the community.
The deceased’s body was taken to the Olenguruone funeral home, while the suspect is being held at the Kuresoi police station awaiting her court date.
