A woman was killed in Orlando and police say it was her fiancé that committed the crime.

Orlando Police responded to the home at the Island Club Apartments on S. Kirkman Road around 2 a.m. Saturday.

When police arrived, they found 34-year-old Ruth Owino dead inside the apartment. Ruth is a native of Kenya.

Her fiance, 41-year-old Nestor Habarugira, was taken to the Orange County Jail.  Investigators said he’s being charged with first-degree murder. He is a native of Burundi.

The two have four children together.  They are now staying with an aunt.

Police said the incident began when Owino told the suspect she no longer wanted to be engaged.

Investigators said there were no previous reported incidents of domestic violence between the two.

This is the eighth murder of the year in Orlando.
