A student from the Kenya Methodist University (KEMU), Meru campus, has allegedly been killed by her boyfriend who then committed suicide at her rental house in Makutano, Meru County.
According to a source who sought anonymity the boy was a student at Chuka University and had gone to Meru to visit the girl with whom he was in a relationship.
It, however, remains unclear when exactly the incident happened since their decomposing bodies were only discovered on Monday afternoon as a foul smell emanated from the house.
The naked body of the girl was found on the floor while the boy was found hanging from the bathroom.
Blood, believed to belong to the girl, was also discovered on the floor as well as the bed.
Police officers have since arrived on scene and taken the bodies.
This comes as the latest in a string of similar incidences involving young couples in the country; a trend that has since caused worry among the general public.
