Her alleged killer, Naftali Kinuthia, is said to have accosted the 6th year medical student and hacked her to death with an axe.

An irate mob consequently descended on Kinuthia but was rescued by the police. He reportedly told investigators that she rejected his advances.

On Wednesday, activists and women leaders held a candlelit vigil at the Nyeri Central Business District in honour of Wangechi and condemned the rise in violence against women.
