Detectives visited the home of the slain Kiambu family with the murder suspect Lawrence Warunge in a bid to reconstruct the crime scene and collect more evidence.

The officers kept journalists and the public away from the home on Monday and they could be seen carrying samples to vehicles.

After spending hours at the house, the detectives got out with a handcuffed Lawrence and bundled him into a car before speeding off.

Our attempts to talk to the investigating officer and the head of the team bore no fruit.

Lawrence was taken back into custody at the Gigiri Police Station.

Nicholas Warunge was killed together with his wife, two children and a construction worker.

James Mburu, a resident, said that the village is still in shock over the brutal killings.

A week ago, the DCI requested the court for 14 days to complete investigations. Kiambu Chief Magistrate Stella Atambo granted the request and set hearing on January 25.
