A 32-year-old man in Keumbu, Kisii has stabbed his 10-year-old nephew to death following a disagreement on the deceased’s academic progress.
The suspect who is a laboratory technician is alleged to have killed the nephew who had gone to visit them early Saturday morning.
In a police report, the suspect found the victim seated in his elder brother’s house with other children before he started questioning him on his academic progress.
It is not clear why he started beating the class five boy. Other family members tried to restrain him in vain.
“He finally took a kitchen knife and stabbed the nephew at the left-hand side between the ribs,” reads the police report.
The suspect has since gone missing with his two-year-old baby.
