Sleuths in Suna West Sub-county, Migori County, are pursuing a middle-aged woman who is on the lam after stabbing her brother-in-law on Tuesday evening.
Eunice Adhiambo reportedly stabbed the deceased with a kitchen knife after a short argument.
Area chief Yogo Tumbo said the deceased had visited his in-law who was peeling cassava over an un-disclosed matter.
According to witnesses, the deceased then spanked his sister-in-law who was not granting him attention, orchestrating the row that turned tragic.
The suspect reportedly rose from her seat viciously stabbing the deceased on the chest with a kitchen knife.
The area chief told the media that the deceased died on the spot with his remains being moved to the Migori level four hospital mortuary pending an autopsy.
