Student Stabs Form Three Lover To Death At School

A Form Three student in Sosiot, Kericho County, murdered a classmate for declining his sexual advances on Wednesday morning.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti, Tony Kiptoo, 19, stabbed Irene Chelagat, 22, with a kitchen knife at Keben Secondary School.

He claimed the knife slashed through the left side of her chest, killing her instantly. Kinoti stated that the murder appeared to be predetermined.

“Kiptoo, who was determined to end Chelagat’s life, had carried a kitchen knife from home to school and committed the horrific act just before the morning lessons began,” Kinoti said in a statement.

He also stated that the victim’s photograph, inscribed with the initials ‘R.I.P.,’ was discovered in Kiptoo’s cubicle.

According to Kinoti, the duo’s classmates caused a commotion, prompting the teacher on duty, Kenneth Korir, to rush to the scene.

“The teacher immediately rushed to the classroom and found the suspect being roughed up as other students were trying to assist the victim, who was bleeding profusely,” the DCI boss said.

The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

“Preliminary investigations by our detectives based in Belgut indicate that the two had been in a love relationship that had since ran its course and the lady had moved on,” Kinoti said.
