73 old man kills son for interrupting his sleep in Trans Nzoia

A 73 year old man has been arrested after he fatally injured his drunken son for rudely interrupting his sleep.

James Tarus was arrested moments after the 7pm incident last night at his home in Cherangany’s Chepsiro location, Trans-Nzoia County.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the 31-year-old victim who had been away for four years arrived home while drunk and found his elderly father enjoying an early evening nap in his bedroom and attempted to surprise his father by lifting his bed.

The irate old man instead picked a wooden bar and hit his son on the head, before tying a rope around his neck.

The neighbours and area chief arrived to find the young man already dead and tied to the sofa.

Police from Cheranganyi police station were immediately called and arrested the suspect as investigations got underway.
