The bodies of a 70-year-old woman and that of her daughter were found in their house at Nairobi’s South B estate.
A relative of the two who went visiting found the bodies Judith Mwai and her 47-year-old daughter Catherine Mwai were in their bedrooms.
According to a police report, the two were found strangled on Monday evening in their separate bedrooms.
