Police are holding the wife of Gatunguru Secondary School Principal Sammy Mbogo whose mutilated body was found in his car boot.
The father of five is alleged to have been murdered in his home by two men who were allegedly hired by his wife, and then stuffed inside his car boot.
The two then attempted to drive off to dispose the body but the car slipped into a trench and was trapped.
The body of Sammy Mbogo was discovered by milk vendors who were on their way to the market when they noticed blood spilling from the car.
Mbogo’s eight-year daughter says her father arrived home at night only for her to hear screams from the father who was pleading with the attackers not to kill him.
The principal’s body had deep wounds on his head, eyes had been gouged out, his tongue removed and knees cut with a panga.
Mbogo’s wife is alleged to have tried to murder her husband initially when he hacked him on his head with a knife.
According to area Chief Stephen Komu, the couple had been entangled in domestic wrangles for a long now.
The wife of the slain teacher is said to assisting police with investigations.
The killing of the Githunguri High school Principal comes almost a year after Kiru Boys High School Principal Salomon Mwangi was found in a thicket in Juja and his wife Jane Muthoni is currently on trial for the murder.
