"Man Wanted for Alleged Murder of Girlfriend at Boston Airport Arrested in Kenya"

Kenyan police announced on Tuesday that they have arrested a man wanted for allegedly killing his girlfriend and abandoning her body in a parking lot at Boston Logan International Airport before fleeing to Kenya.

Kevin Kangethe, 40, was apprehended at a nightclub on Monday following a tipoff, according to Director of Criminal Investigations Mohammed Amin.

Amin stated that Kangethe will be extradited to the United States.

The body of Margaret Mbitu, 31, was discovered in early November inside a car at a parking garage at the airport. Mbitu, who was from Whitman, Massachusetts, had been reported missing by her family two days before her body was found.

It is currently unclear whether Kangethe has legal representation.

Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden in Boston commended the efforts to locate and apprehend Kangethe, expressing gratitude to the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service, the FBI, Kenyan law enforcement agencies, the Kenyan government, and the Massachusetts State Police for their collaboration in the case.

David Procopio, a spokesperson for the Massachusetts State Police, described the arrest as a collaborative effort that involved coordination across international borders. He mentioned that while the next step is the extradition process, there is no set timeline for its completion.

The U.S. Embassy also praised the efforts of Kenyan law enforcement in capturing the fugitive.
