Police in Migori are holding a 42-Year old woman arrested over the weekend after she was accused of defiling a Class 8 pupil.
Citizen Digital reported on Sunday that area locals found the woman with the 14-year-old boy at her home in Nyamaraga, Suna West Sub County on Saturday evening.
Area Assistant Chief Evance Nyarube said he got a report from irate residents who complained about the suspect’s “fishy” relationship with the teenager.
The administrator noted that the boy’s parents had repeatedly warned the two against having a relationship but their efforts were futile.
Mr. Nyarube added that investigations established that the suspect intended to marry the teenager.
The assistant chief said defilement is a crime stating that the suspect will face the law. The suspect was arraigned on Monday at Migori court. The case was postponed till next week.
