Flossy Cherono is said  to have  killed   11 year old  Ivy Chelagat and 7 year old  Beryl  Chepchumba  using a machete  and later   disposed of their bodies inside a pit latrine  on 9th July 2019 at their home in Kaburwo Nandi County.


High Court Judge  Reuben Nyakundi  was abstruse  on how  a mother  would commit such a crime against  her  children who trusted her with their care ,protection and love,


A postmortem report indicated one of the children had  been strangled to death while the other bled  to death due to a deep cut on the head.


Cherono has  14 days to appeal the  ruling.
