An eight-year-old girl lost her life in Majengo, Kilgoris, following a domestic brawl between her parents.
The young girl became a victim of circumstance when she received a deadly blow meant for her mother from her father.
Amos Maengwe 30 and his wife Esther Kaiseyi 21 were fighting before the 10:00 pm incident happened.
After realizing what had happened, the couple immediately called a cease-fire and carried their daughter to the hospital for the much needed medical attention.
They were stopped along the way by police officers who were on patrol.
Upon seeing the grave condition of the little girl, the police helped the couple rush their daughter to Kilgoris Sub-County Hospital.
When they arrived at the hospital, the doctors tried to salvage the situation but unfortunately, the little girl’s condition worsened.
Eventually, the little girl succumbed to her injuries while receiving treatment. She sustained a deep cut on her head from her father’s blow.
The couple were held at Kilgoris Police Station as detectives concluded their investigations before arraigning them in court.
