Woman in abusive marriage who killed husband jailed for 1 day


A Siaya Court has handed a 1-day non-custodial sentence to a 49-year-old woman who killed her husband in a domestic row gone awry.

While delivering the judgement, Judge Roselyne Aburili of the High Court in Siaya noted that the accused-Truphena Aswani- had suffered immensely at the hands of her abusive husband who constantly threatened to kill her over a Title Deed.

According to Judge Aburili, Ms Aswani would be remembered as a butchered, battered, dehumanized and violated woman who had no voice and who persevered through the domestic violence meted on her by her late husband who was described as irresponsible and violent.

The court heard that the deceased had previously parted ways with his two other wives who had also borne a similar tale of violence and abuse.

His four children from the two marriages had been left under the care of the accused.

In the lead up to the fatal encounter with her late husband, the court heard that the accused had at one time been admitted to hospital after she was violently abused and battered during an argument.
