A Nakuru-based doctor suspected of killing his two children by injecting them with insulin has died.

Nakuru County Commander Beatrice Kiraguri confirmed the demise of Dr James Gakara, who died this morning while undergoing  treatment at the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

At the weekend, a police report said that Gakara, an obstetrician at Optimum Current Hospital, Nakuru, was suspected of killing his two children aged three and five, before attempting suicide.

Authorities found the bodies of the two children at their Milimani apartments in Nakuru.

An autopsy conducted on the two children to ascertain the cause of their death, was declared inconclusive.

Nakuru West DCIO, Stephen Ambani, told journalists that the postmortem could not reveal what caused their death.
