Seven boys aged between 16 and 19 will face murder charges in a case involving the death of a fellow teenager in Murang’a County.
They are secondary school students said to have visited the deceased a day before he was found dead.
Director of Public Prosecutions has said the seven boys will be jointly charged with the murder of Jualiano Kanyonyo, 15, on November 17.
The suspects appeared before Murang’a Resident Magistrate Ms. Violet Ochanda who remanded them until December 20 when the matter will be mentioned for further directions.
Mutinda told the court that they will be charged for jointly killing Juliano Kanyonyo on November 17 at Gatitu village, Kandara Sub County.
“We shall proceed to charge them with murder as the police have completed their investigations,” Sebastian Mutinda, the Deputy Prosecutor in charge of Murang’a, said.
The underage suspects were remanded at Murang’a police station while adults were sent to Murang’a GK Prison. They had been detained at Kandara police station in the last two weeks after police obtained orders to complete their investigations.
The prosecution has listed Ms. Beth Nduta, the mother of the deceased, among the five witnesses expected to testify in the trial.
Kanyonyo was reportedly found dead in his room. He was killed after his mother left to a nearby market to buy chicken.
The deceased was among the best candidates at the nearby Gatitu Primary School.
