Pherine Maero, the 32-year-old woman who killed her two kids aged 7 and 9 by poisoning them in the Mwiyala area of Kakamega looked happy on social media.
Maero, who works as a nurse in Kakamega County, is said to have committed the crime, before calling her husband to pick up the bodies of the minors.
She is also said to have attempted suicide by stabbing herself in the neck with a knife.
Neigbours who spoke to the press described Maero as a very hot-tempered and chaotic wife, whose behaviours led her husband to abandon them.
At one point, she smashed her husband’s car with stones at the apartment they were living in.
Neigbours further revealed that the two could always be involved in heated arguments and endless domestic fights.
Her husband was forced to walk out of their toxic marriage, leaving Maero with their two kids.
Maero is admitted to a local hospital in critical condition after she attempted to commit suicide while the bodies of her deceased kids are preserved at the Kakamega County General Teaching & Referral Hospital mortuary.
Below are some photos that she posted on social media looking all happy but sadly, she was battling depression.
