US authorities are trying to locate relatives of a Kenyan woman suspected to have been murdered on Tuesday.

The woman, identified by close friends as Maurlyn Moore, was found dead in her apartment in Brooklyn Park in Minnesota.

Minnesota Kenyans' Association Secretary Albert Nyamari told the Daily Nation on phone Friday that the woman had been married to a Liberian and had changed her maiden name.

“We do not know her middle name, but we understand she comes from western Kenya, probably in Busia or Butere,” he said.

She was working as a nurse in the US and was married to a Liberian plumber. They had no children.

Police suspect that the woman was murdered by her husband over what they describe as "marital issues".

On Tuesday night, police were called to the Villa Del Cornado apartments on the 8100 block of Zane Avenue North, an hour after midnight, after being tipped off about a domestic stabbing, said Mr Nyamari.

“When they arrived, they found the female victim dead on the scene, and immediately took an adult male into custody.”

The suspect was taken to the North Memorial Medical Centre, where he is being treated for injuries sustained in the conflict.
