Ondimu appeared before Ogembo Resident Magistrate Gloria Barasa where the investigative officer sought one more day to conduct a DNA test on the suspect.

Ondimu was arrested in Nairobi last Friday after an 11-month search by detectives. On February 5 this year, a couple - Laban Nyaata and his wife Nancy Bochere - appeared before Justice David Majanja where they pleaded not guilty to killing Elvinah.

They were remanded at the Kisii GK Prison and on February 26, they were released on a bond of Sh300,000 and a surety of a similar amount each. Elvinah, a KCSE candidate, was murdered and her body dumped in a fish pond near her Mariba village home.
