oseph Irungu alias Jowie has been found guilty of murdering businesswoman Monica Kimani whose lifeless body was found in her apartment in Kilimani, Nairobi in September 2018.
While delivering her judgment at the Milimani Courts, Justice Grace Nzioka said that the prosecution had proved beyond any reasonable doubt that Irungu was directly linked to the murder.
"All this evidence leaves a strong conclusion that Irungu murdered Monica Kimani," she said.
"The person who killed the deceased did not intend to give her even one minute to survive. It is my considered opinion and finding that the perpetrator intended instant death," Justice Nzioka added.
She said Jowie’s bond has been cancelled and he will remain in police custody until March 8, 2023, when he will be sentenced.
