The third suspect in the gruesome murder of Rwanda-based businessman George Mwangi Kamau has been arrested.
John Muikiriria Mwangi, who went missing on the same day as the deceased, was arrested, bringing the number of arrested suspects following the cold-blooded murder to three.
The arrest follows comprehensive investigations conducted by detectives from the homicide department, who took over investigations into the murder.
The seasoned detectives found it was too much of a coincidence that the second accused, Morris Kamau Mbugua, was hired on October 8, 2022, by the main suspect Gladys Njeri Mwangi Alias Chania, a day before the death and disappearance of the deceased while John Muikiriria Mwangi, went missing on the same day.
According to Chania, John Mwangi, who had worked at the home for four years, allegedly failed to return home after she sent him to deposit some money on Mpesa.
A prima facie case was established against the accused, the main suspect Gladys Chania and Morris Kamau Mbugua who were charged on November 2, 2022, at Kiambu law courts.
After conducting a thorough forensic documentation of the deceased's house, detectives based at the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau, Homicide department, Forensic Crime Scene, and Photographic units concluded that George Mwangi was murdered in his house before his body was dumped at Kieni forest, central Kenya.
Pieces of blood-stained metal rods, blood-soaked bed sheets, stained curtains, and clothing were part of the exhibits that were recovered in the house by the operatives at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
