A man will be arraigned in court on Thursday after he murdered his 5-year-old stepson.

Njoroge is said to have slashed the boy twice with a panga on the head as he slept with his cousins.

Tens of such deaths have been recorded across the country, and even before sleuths can resolve one, another happens.
