Angry Kenya Student Stabs Ex-lover to death Inside Classroom

A 19-year-old student identified as Tony Kiptoo has been arrested for stabbing his 22-year-old former girlfriend, Irene Chelagat inside classroom.

The news come across as a really shocking development as the Kenya’s Directorate of Criminal Investigation said 19-year-old Tony Kiptoo of Keben secondary school, stabbed his ex-lover Irene Chelagat on the left side of her chest, killing her on the spot after she allegedly turned down his romantic advances.

School officials described Chelagat as a diligent and hardworking student, who performed exceptionally in his English subject.

Investigations by the DCI show that Kiptoo had premeditated Chelagat’s murder as he had wished her “peace in death by inscribing the initials R.I.P on a photo later discovered in his cubicle.”

It was also learnt that the young couple had been in a strained relationship before calling it quits and Chelagat had since moved on. However, Kiptoo could not bear it and became furious after discovering that his former lover had found a new “catch”, who also bought her a new smartphone.

Kiptoo, who was determined to end Chelagat’s life had carried a kitchen knife from home to school and committed the horrific act just before the morning lessons began. Irate classmates descended on Kiptoo as others screamed attracting the attention of the teacher on duty Kenneth Korir, who was at the staff room preparing for the day’s lessons.
