Mr Daniel Oyondi Moi hacked to death Reginah Kiinya outside Mweiga police station on 29 April 2017 in Kieni West sub-county.
He had stalked the mother of four before pulling out a machete and slashing her on the hands and head, killing her on the spot.
He later surrendered to the police to escape the wrath of an irate mob that was baying for his blood.
Justice Teresiah Matheka, in her ruling, noted that Mr Moi committed the offence following suspicion that the deceased was being promiscuous.This, the judge said, is because Mr Moi could not accept the fact that Regina was still in a relationship with the father of her children, and therefore could not accommodate him.
