A woman in Kenya was on Thursday charged with murdering her fiancé of two years in disagreement over who should wash the utensils after cooking and eating.
The woman by name Susan Njeri Wachiuri, 25, is accused of stabbing Kelvin Njenga Ng’ang’a 11 times using a kitchen knife. Njenga had visited Ms Wachiuri two days before the Easter weekend in order to celebrate with her.
Before Milimani High Court Judge James Wakiaga, the accused denied committing the crime on April 9 at White House within Tena Estate in Nairobi.
“I apply to be admitted to bond. Article 49 of the Constitution allows all suspects arraigned [for] any offence to be admitted to bond,” she pleaded.
State prosecutor Wangui Gichuhi asked the court to direct the suspect to file a formal application alongside written submissions for her response.
She said the investigating officer would file a sworn affidavit in opposition to Ms Wachiuri’s prayer.
Justice Wakiaga set the hearing for May 14 through Skype, due to regulations to curb the spread of Covid-19.
He ordered the application filed through the normal court process.
