A man was arrested on a charge of murder after stabbing his wife numerous times because she used his cellphone, police in Kenya said.
Now, 39-year-old Bernard Mwenga Wilson of Nairobi, has been sentenced to death for killing Caroline Mbeta, who was a mother of three children.
The court heard that Wilson was known for beating his wife. On the day of the murder, Wilson and his wife were arguing at the salon where she worked about the use of his mobile phone.
At some point, he pulled a knife and stabbed his wife 23 times.
The woman died of blood loss. Wilson told the court that he was drunk at the time and did not remember anything that happened on that day.
Wilson was found guilty of murder and was sentenced to death by hanging. He has 14 days to appeal the verdict and sentence.
