  • Woman separated from her husband two months ago and remarried in the next village.
  • Her hand had been chopped off and the body burnt with acid.

A-29-year old man is being held at Rangwe Police Station in Homa Bay County on suspicion of killing his estranged wife.

The two, who separated two months ago, hailed from Kagan West Location.
