A  Kenyan businesswoman based in the US who shot her husband dead has been sentenced to hang.

Sheila Wanjiku Kibinge who murdered Leonard Kibinge Kiruri on  April 15 2014 at Gitaru Village in Kikuyu on the outskirts of Nairobi city was handed the death penalty after a judge found her guilty of pre-meditated murder.

“I have considered the fact that she is a first offender…a Phd student, has two children, her age and that she is the sole bread winner, however the circumstances of the offence are serious,” justice Jessie Lessit said.

The judge said there is only one sentence for such offences in law-the death penalty!

But Sheila will be pursuing an appeal.
