Molo police officer and the woman he allegedly murdered before shooting himself.

A  police officer in Nakuru County  is alleged to have shot his girlfriend on Tuesday evening before taking his life with the same AK47 rifle at their rental house in Freehold Area.

Stephen Mungai Kinuthia, who was stationed at Molo Police Station, is said to have shot his girlfriend three times

“I was with the caretaker when we heard a man fighting with the wife and the man was striking her with canes, and as we were going to help, we heard gun shots and stayed put,” said the watchman.

Speaking from the crime scene, neighbors said they heard a child shouting “baba anaua mama!” [father is killing mother] before gun shots rent the air.

Neighbours said the woman had only lived in the apartment for two weeks and that the police officer was a frequent visitor.

Nakuru OCPD, Joshua Omukatta, said police started a probe to establish what transpired.

Their bodies have been taken to Nakuru County government mortuary as investigations continue.
