Migingo Girls High School Deputy Principal Roselyn Nyawanda has been killed allegedly by her own son according to Kochieng assistant chief.
It has been revealed that after killing his mother, the man elected to burn the body and then locked himself inside the main house of the family.
According to Kochieng assistant chief Shadrack Awuor, the body was discovered on Sunday night.
“I received a distress call from one of the sons who works in Kisumu about the murder. He had attempted to reach the mother since Saturday but the calls had gone unanswered,” said Mr Awuor.
The assistant chief also revealed that the killing happened on Saturday night.
The suspect who is in his 20s killed his mother and then placed her body in the bathroom before he set it on fire.
According to Nyando OCPD Grace Mulwa, the body had been burnt beyond recognition.
“We found a kitchen knife alongside the body, though it did not have bloodstains, but we will investigate further and maybe the post-mortem will reveal the cause of death,” said Ms Mulwa.
She added: “The son was found in the house. We are holding him as the first suspect. We are yet to interrogate him.”
The man was detained at Nyando Police Station.
“From the reports of the other son staying in Kisumu, the suspect is on medication and is suffering from a mental disorder,” she said.
The body is currently being kept at Nyando County Referral Hospital mortuary.
