According to reports, Paul Njoroge, 28, killed the 5-year-old while he was sleeping after the boy's mother rejected his marriage proposal.

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

Partners killing their spouses  

The court had given the investigating officers eight days to compile evidence and the suspect to undergo a mental evaluation to determine whether he is fit to stand trial.

There has been a rise in homicide cases with partners killing their spouses or turning their anger to children.

A compilation of the latest deaths paints a worrying trend of a disgruntled lot, impatient in resolving even the most trivial of disagreements.

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