Allegations are that Kagoro was refusing to be divorced and would harass the unidentified woman whenever he saw her with a man.
On the fateful day Kagoro acting on a tip-off that his ex-girlfriend was in bed with another man went and set ablaze her thatched bedroom hut.
Two people managed to escape leaving behind the 4 year old child who was burnt beyond recognition.
Meanwhile the notorious Kagore is said to be a prison regular and has served some time on several occasions. Police apprehended the suspect whilst hiding in a nearby cave.
It is disheartening to note that crimes of passion are on the increase in Mashonaland Central province.
