Police in Nyeri have opened a probe into the death of a 75-year-old German national.
Weise Klaus Armin was found dead at his home in Nyeri, hours after an argument with his wife Rosemary Wangui, 38.
The foreigner’s body was found hanging from the door frame of the master bedroom, according to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
In a report filed at Nyeri Central Police Station on October 15th, Wangui said she had visited her ailing mother in Othaya earlier in the day but on returning to their home in Nyeri’s Muhasibu Estate along Gamerock area, she found her husband breathing fire, accusing her of infidelity.
An argument then ensued forcing her to flee after Armin allegedly threatened to stab her to death with a knife.
The deceased is said to have locked himself up in their bedroom, where he was found dead the following day.
When police officers arrived at the scene, they broke into the bedroom and found Armin’s lifeless body hanging from a rope.
A multi-agency team comprised of homicide officers, Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau, and Scene of Crime detectives are investigating the incident.
Police are waiting for the deceased’s kin to arrive from Germany for a postmortem on Armin’s body to be conducted.
