Burial Date Set For Kenyan Woman, Her 2 Daughters Killed by Husband In US

    The funeral for a Kenyan woman and her two daughters who were murdered by her husband in the United States has been scheduled.

    Gary Stanton, 60, Njoki Muchemi, 49, and her two daughters Andrianna Stanton, 17, and Brianna Stanton, 11, were discovered dead in their home in Kentucky, USA, in a murder-suicide, according to police.

    Njoki’s younger brother, Moses Muchemi, stated that they had decided to bury their kin on December 28 in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

    “Burial will be on December 28, to commemorate one month since her birthday which was on November 28,” he said.

    Muchemi stated that family members in Kenya are still waiting for the American embassy to review their travel request in order to travel to the United States for the burial.

    “We are still hoping to get the approvals needed to travel and hopefully by Tuesday we shall have a conclusive answer on the number of family members who will travel for the burial,” Muchemi said.

    Kenyans were shocked by the murder-suicide because the couple was regarded as having a picture-perfect family.

    According to police reports, Stanton murdered his family before killing himself in their suburban home in the United States.

    The couple raised their two children in an affluent neighborhood, and the Muchemi family described the couple as happy.

    The incident devastated the family because it occurred less than a month after the couple and their children had attended their father’s burial in Kirinyaga.

    Njoki’s father, Geoffrey Migwi Muchemi, died on October 17 and was buried on November 12 in Kiamaina, Kirinyaga, a ceremony that the couple not only attended but also played a significant role in its planning and finances.
