A 24-year-old female prison warden was on Wednesday morning found dead in her rented house in Murang'a.
Pauline Wangari, a constable at Murang’a GK Prison, was found with several stab wounds in her stomach, chest, and head.
She was found without clothes and her entire bedding soaked in blood. A roll of bhang was also placed between her lips, and a kitchen knife clutched in her right hand.
Confirming the incident, Murang’a Police Commander Josephat Kinyua says investigations into the killing have been launched.
A middle-aged man with a tattoo on his neck was reportedly captured on CCTV footage entering the deceased's house at 9 pm on Monday and leaving on Tuesday at 3 am.
The footage further shows the man leaving the house while carrying a TV set, a large bag, and a mobile phone.
