The chairman said the couple has been having recurrent domestic disputes. The deceased husband had apparently reported to the chief several times that the wife beat him severally, according to Mr Mugo.

Upon instruction by the chief to report his wife’s violence to the police, the husband would not heed the advice, the chairman added.
