14-year-old girl stones grandmother to death

A 14-year-old girl treated residents of Seme, Kisumu county to a rude shock after she stoned an 80-year-old grandmother to death.

The girl fled after committing the heinous act. Fortunately, the local authorities caught up with her.

The unfortunate incident happened on Sunday afternoon at Konywera village, East Reru in West Seme Location. At 14 years old, the girl was a class seven pupil in a local school.

Disagreement

Reports show that the girl disagreed with the grandmother on where to tether cattle. Hellen Chepkorir, the Seme Sub-County Police Commander, said that the minor had tied animals in the grandmother’s compound at around 2 pm.

Since the woman was drying her maize in the sun, she asked the girl to tie the cattle somewhere else. She feared that the cows would interfere with her maize.

That is when the quarrel between them started. The elderly woman tried to hit the girl with a walking stick. The girl responded by throwing stones at her.

“Police officers visited the scene and established that the juvenile hurled a stone which hit the deceased on the ribs, causing the woman to collapse and fall on the ground,” the police commander said.

The officers rushed the elderly woman to the hospital, but unfortunately, she passed on while receiving treatment.

Fearing the worst, the 14-year-old girl ran away. However, her relatives pursued her and managed to get hold of her. They then took her to the police station.

Officers took the grandmother’s body to the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital (JOOTRH) in Kisumu. Pathologists will carry out a post-morterm to determine the cause of death.

The police commander said that they would arraign the minor in court sometime this week.
