19-year-old student murders ex-lover inside classroom
Ejes Gist Newspaper reports that a 19-year-old student was arrested for fatally stabbing his ex- lover, a 22-year-old high school student.
Tony Kiptoo, 19, of Keben secondary school, allegedly stabbed his ex-lover Irene Chelagat on the left side of her breast, killing her on the spot after she allegedly turned down his romantic advances, according to Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigation.
The deceased ex- lover, Chelagat was regarded by school administrators as a conscientious and hardworking student who excelled in his English class.
Kiptoo had premeditated Chelagat’s murder, according to the DCI, because he had wished her “peace in death by inscribing the initials R.I.P on a photo later located in his cubicle.”
The young couple had a rocky relationship before calling it quits, and Chelagat had since moved on. Kiptoo, on the other hand, could not take it anymore and became enraged when he learned that his former sweetheart had found a new “catch” who had also bought her a new smartphone.
