A man has been convicted for killing his friend and hiding the body under a bed.

Justice Joel Ngugi on Friday ruled that prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt against Samuel Karanja, charged with murdering Stephen Waweru.

Karanja committed the offence on September 18, 2014 at Munyeki Village in Ol Kalou, Nyandarua County.

“I find the accused guilty in the murder of Stephen Waweru contrary to Section 203, as read with Section 204 of the Penal Code. I hereby convict him accordingly,” said the judge.

Karanja's bond terms were cancelled, as he was remanded in prison awaiting sentencing.
