A  prison  warder has been arrested and is being held at Bomet Police Station for questioning over the death of his 23-year old lover.

The  warder  who  serves  at  Bomet  GK  Prison was arrested following allegations that he had quarreled with the deceased before he hit her with a blunt object.

According  to  the  Bomet Central Sub County Police Commander (SCPC), Musa  Omar, the  two have been in a relationship and that lately, their neighbours at Kamukunji estate have witnessed quarrels that have often led to vicious fights.

Omar  said  they indulged in alcohol and would fight in drunken stupor, a trend, he said to have gone on unreported till yesterday when the murder occurred.

The  28-year-old officer, whose identity is yet to be been revealed, is said to have hit the woman with unidentified object on the head.

“Our  officers who were responding to a distress call found the woman lying unconscious in a pool of blood,” Omar said.

Medics  at  the Longisa Referral Hospital declared the victim dead on arrival and her body was moved to the facility’s morgue.
