German national found dead after argument with wife in Nyeri

Police are investigating the mysterious death of a 75-year-old German national in Nyeri following an argument with his wife.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Wise Klaus Armin’s lifeless body was found hanging from the door frame of their master bedroom.

According to his wife Rosemary Wangui, 38, who filed her report at Nyeri’s central police station on October 15, she had visited her ailing mother in nearby Othaya earlier in the day.

But on returning to their home in Nyeri’s Muhasibu Estate along Gamerock area, she allegedly found her husband breathing fire, accusing her of infidelity.

An argument then ensued forcing her to flee for dear life, after the man allegedly threatened to kill her using a knife.

The deceased then locked himself in the bedroom, where his lifeless body was later found.

When police officers from Nyeri arrived at the scene, they broke into the bedroom and found Armin’s lifeless body hanging from a rope.

Homicide experts from headquarters, with a backup team from Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau and Scene of crime detectives, immediately took over the matter.

They have since visited the scene, analyzed it forensically, taken statements from various sources and are now waiting for the deceased’s kin to arrive from Germany, for a postmortem on Armin’s body to be conducted in a bid to get to bottom of the matter.
