Wangechi’s Killer to Court


The man who killed Ms Ivy Wangechi is expected to appear in court today in Eldoret as detectives continue to record statements from potential witnesses.

He was discharged from the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital on Friday evening with police promising to take him to court on Monday after interrogation.

Mr Naftali Kinuthia, who brutally attacked Ms Wangechi last Tuesday morning killing her in front of the hospital, spent the weekend at an undisclosed location.

MTRH Chief Executive Officer Wilson Aruasa confirmed Mr Kinuthia’s discharge.

He had been admitted to the hospital on Tuesday after he was severely beaten by members of the public after attacking Ms Wangechi.

Eldoret East Directorate of Criminal Investigations Officer Ali Kingi said the suspect would be interrogated before his arraignment.

Detectives had begun recording statements from colleagues of Ms Wangechi and passers-by as they prepared charges against him over the weekend.

Eldoret East OCPD Lucy Kananu on Friday said they were looking for those who could have information that could help in preparing the case against him.
