Man suspected of slitting son’s throat arrested while trying to board Qatar-bound flight

A man suspected of killing his son by slitting his throat using a kitchen knife was arrested as he attempted to flee the country on Friday.

41-year-old Nehemiah Asiago was intercepted as he prepared to board a Qatar-bound flight.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), the suspect had engaged homicide detectives in a cat and mouse game since last year.

The man is said to have had a domestic squabble with his son before the incident occurred at Bomakombi village in Suneka in June 2020.

“Byron’s brother told detectives that a disagreement arose after their father who was intoxicated, demanded to know what he had brought home from his day at the local centre. Incensed by his father’s remarks since he was jobless and had gone to look for a job that didn’t come by, Byron posed a similar question to his father, asking him what he had to show for his day’s activities other than returning home in a drunken stupor. This prompted a scuffle, that led to his death,” the DCI said on Twitter.

Since then, Nehemiah is reported to have been secretly operating between Nakuru and Nairobi counties until Friday afternoon when the sleuths busted him as he was preparing to fly out of the country.

DCI detectives are currently interrogating the suspect for further details into the murder.
