The Kenyan Star reports that Mbaithe flew into a serious rage during an argument with Githuka and picked up a knife with which she stabbed him several times in the chest after he returned home in the early hours of Saturday, July 30, in their apartment in Tinganga village, Kiambu town.

The victim's mother, Elizabeth Wanjiku, while narrating how the incident happened to Star reporters, said he worked at a neighbouring school and usually returned at about 10pm and that the couple had been married for five years with a four-year-old child.

"My son and I live in the same compound. I heard confrontation from my house past midnight.

I got out of bed and went to my son's apartment where I found him arguing with his wife. She was accusing him of coming home late and drunk but David stood his ground, saying he was the head of the house who should not have been confronted over the matter.

I did not know that Mbaithe had a knife since she folded her arms during the argument. It was not a physical confrontation but my son's wife suddenly attacked and stabbed him in the chest with a knife."

"After my son was stabbed I called for help from neighbours but upon reaching hospital, he was pronounced dead due to loss of blood.

We reported the matter at the Kiambu police station and officers arrived later and arrested Mbaithe at the home."
