Sources indicate that the boy returned early from school that day, without any clear explanation to the parent.
This led to a quarrel when his father demanded the explanation, leading to a physical fight in which the boy stabbed the man in the stomach several times.
His body has been taken to St Vincent de Paul Mission Hospital mortuary in Muhoroni, Kisumu county.
After the incident, the boy fled but later turned himself in to Fort Ternan Police Station.
