Police in Kisii are holding a man who allegedly strangled to death his newly wed wife before attempting suicide by throwing himself in a nearby river on Monday.

This reportedly led to an argument before the man turned violent and attacked the woman.

Confirming the incident, Nyamage Assistant Chief Sarah Isaboke said the accused then threw himself into River Kegati before passersby rescued him and called his brother who took him to his home.

“On reaching home, the brother was shocked to find Nyaboke lying on the floor in vomit,” said Ms. Isaboke.
