The woman was found half-naked wearing only a T-shirt.

“Her face was smashed with a stone... Her breasts were cut off and her private parts slightly cut with an unknown sharp instrument,” Makau said.

Her stomach had also been cut open.

Police were awaiting the results of the post mortem to determine whether she had been raped before the murder, Makau said.
