A man who killed his four children has been handed a 200-year sentence by a Kisii court, Kenya. Lukas Misati, 40, was slapped with the lengthy prison term after pleading guilty to manslaughter. Kisii resident judge Joseph Karanja on Monday ruled that Mr Misati will serve the sentence concurrently for 50 years for each of the four counts of murder he had been charged with. He has 14 days to appeal the sentence that could see him spend the rest of his life in prison. The case had been in court since 2013 when Misati was charged with killing his four children; Toto Misati, 3, Brian, 9, Ontoyo, 7 and Naom Mogutu 5. He was said to have killed the children outside their rental houses in Egesa in Kitutu Chache Central, Kisii County on the night of November 10, 2012.

Justice Karanja sent the accused to prison after the State agreed to the charge of murder instead of the lesser charge of manslaughter. Misati pleaded guilty to manslaughter charges, admitting that he committed the offence and agreed to the witnesses statements. Five witnesses testified against him.

Wife, Hellen Kemunto

In her affidavit, the wife, Helen Kemunto, told the court that her husband had come home on the night of November 10, 2012 woke her up and said he wanted them to move house. But she insisted they first clear the rent arrears before moving out, at which point Misati got furious and stabbed her in the forehead. “I managed to escape and went to seek treatment at Kisii Level Five Hospital,” reads the sworn affidavit in part.
Kemunto managed to flee and seek medical attention at the Kisii Level Five hospital, where she stayed until morning only to return home and find her children missing.
“I thought they had shifted to another house. My husband called our landlady and told her to inform me that I pick my children from the nearby bush. However, one of the children lay dead at the doorstep while the other three bodies were in the nearby nappier grass,” she said
A post-mortem done on the bodies of the children revealed their deaths were as a result of strangulation.
