Her husband, 78, and the maid were seriously injured by the gang that attacked them at their house in Bureti.
They stole Sh5,000 and a mobile phone before the murder and rapes. If there was another motive, it was not immediately clear.
A sombre mood engulfed the village as residents tried to understand the violence at 4am yeterday.
The husband was hit with a blunt object. He was rushed to Litein Mission Hospital and is reported to be in stable condition.
