The family of slain US-based Kenyan couple says an unidentified person visited their house on the night the two were murdered.
Edward Morema Nyagechi, 62, and his wife Mong’ina Morema, 60, were found dead inside their house at Nyamakoroto village, Kitutu Masaba, Nyamira County on Tuesday morning.
Morema was found lying dead near his garage with deep cuts on his head while his hands and legs were tied with binding wire. His wife’s body was later found in the bedroom with deep cuts around her neck and tied up in a similar manner to her husband.
Morema's grandson Samuel Matundura said a man who seemed familiar to the couple came to their house and spent the night there.
He said the deceased’s domestic worker prepared dinner for the couple and the visitor before leaving them in the sitting room while she went to sleep upstairs.
The farmhand, who also lives in a separate house in the same compound, locked the main gate to the compound and retired to his house.
The two workers have since been arrested for questioning as police conduct investigations into the murder of the couple, who were on vacation from their home in the United States.
Matundura said the house is fitted with CCTV cameras but police are yet to check whether they were working on the night the couple was brutally murdered.
No door had been broken, further raising suspicion that the unknown visitor may have had a hand in the murder.
The grandson said his grandparents came to Kenya in December for a vacation before returning to the US, as was their norm.
At the time of his death, Morema was overseeing the construction of his rental apartments in Kakamega.
