By Audrey Ngeny | September 20th 2019
The prime suspect in last week’s killing of a female police officer Robinah Moraa will be held for three more days after prosecution said he is till too sick to be charged.
The prosecution has requested for five days to conduct an identification parade and get statements from crucial witnesses.
Joshua King Ogach could not stand trial on Monday after the prosecution said he was critically ill after attempting to commit suicide, by drinking poison.
He spent two days at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) after his arrest due to the deterioration of his health status.
The Deputy Registrar Grace Sitati directed that the suspect be held for three days for the prosecution to complete investigations.
Ogach was arrested in Nakuru on Saturday last week in a hospital after a failed suicide attempt. He is reported to have allegedly taken poison.
Ms Moraa was found murdered at her rented house in Miti Moja Estate on the outskirts of Eldoret town.
She was attached to Naiberi Police Station, Ainabkoi Sub County and is suspected to have been killed by Ogach, her estranged lover.
