She was today stabbed to death by her lover after breaking up with him. She was killed in a rented room in a residential building near Nakumatt supermarket.
She is said to have had an argument with the man, 36-year-old ex-military officer Maxwell Ochieng, after breaking the news to him. He stabbed her 10 times in the chest and neck before attempting to kill himself using the same knife.
