Kenyan man sentenced to 200 years for killing his 4 children

02 March 2016, 17:30

Kisii - A 40-year-old man in Kisii County, Kenya, has been sentenced to 200 years in prison for killing his four children.

Lukas Misati allegedly committed the offence in 2012 following a feud with his wife.

His wife, Helen Kemunto, had allegedly disagreed with his plans to move from their rental house when Misati attacked her. 

Kemunto escaped with injuries and managed to get treatment at a nearby hospital. But when she returned home, she found the children missing.

It was later discovered that Misati had strangled the children, aged between 3 and 9, to death.

He went into hiding, but police managed to arrest and open a case against him in 2013, according to Standard.

On Monday, Kisii Judge Joseph Karanja found Misati guilty of four counts of murder and sentenced him to 50 years on each count.

This came as reports on Tuesday indicated that police in Eldoret had arrested another man for poisoning his four children after a quarrel with his wife.

Musa Saka reportedly poisoned the children's drinks after his wife fled to her parent's home following the quarrel. Two of the children died and the other two were currently undergoing treatment.

Saka will be arraigned after police complete investigations into the matter.
