A woman in Kenya has been arrested for setting her husband and children on fire.

Neighbours at the burnt house

In the end, the husband was burnt beyond recognition while the innocent children were lucky as they were rescued alive by neighbours.

According to the report, Kabura sprayed her sleeping husband with kerosene, shut him in the bedroom and lit him up before dashing out into hiding as the fire consumed him.

According to neighbours who managed to rescue the screaming children left in the blazing house's living room, the family was new in the area and were always embroiled in domestic feuds.

A neighbour, Joseph Muiruri told NTV:

“They have been fighting around always, and they just settled in the premises recently.”

Police arrived at the scene an hour later and took the deceased's body to Murang'a mortuary, as residents embarked on a search for the woman, who was later found unconscious in what is believed to be a suicide attempt, after consuming pesticide and leaving behind a note.
