By - | August 8th 2013 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300

Nyeri, Kenya: A middle-aged man appearing in a Nyeri court for allegedly assaulting his mother will now face murder charges after the elderly woman died.

The prosecution yesterday said charges against Nahason Kanyi King’ara will be enhanced to murder after the woman died while being treated in hospital.

King’ara had been charged with assaulting Magdalene Wangui with a panga resulting in bodily harm.

When he appeared before Nyeri Resident Magistrate John Aringo, the assault case did not proceed as expected, after the prosecution made a request to amend the charges.

According to the earler charges, Mr King’ara attacked his mother with a panga on May 29, 2013, at Githakwa village.
