A man said to have been on the run for three years was yesterday arrested by police at his hideout in Makutano, Timboroa, Nakuru.
David Kibe, 33, was arrested by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives. Nakuru DCI officers raided a house where the man is said to have been living after fleeing home.
The detectives had been looking for him in connection with the death of a Joan Wairimu whose body was found in Timboroa Forest in 2016.
DCI chief George Kinoti said Kibe would be taken to court tomorrow where a custodian miscellaneous application will be made to pave way for further investigations.
A second suspect Peter Kibe was charged in connection with the murder.

The matter is still pending at the Nakuru Law Courts. “Both suspects have been placed at the scene of murder through forensic analysis. The suspect is due to be arraigned in court on Monday for custodian miscellaneous applications to pave way further investigation,” read a statement from Nakuru DCI.
In 2016, Benjamin Ndeto found the woman’s body in the forest and reported to the police.
