Police officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations-DCI have arrested a 29-year-old murder suspect Nicholas Luka.
Luka is suspected to have monstrously butchered a man on January 13, who was hosting him before burning his dead body at a bush in Kitui’s Zombe area.
According to the detectives, the deceased’s disappearance from his house for a whole week had raised suspicion.
And now the detectives believe that on January 13 the suspect and the 36-yr-old deceased Simon Mwangangi had an argument over a shillings 4,000 debt, culminating into a fight.
In the process of the argument, the suspect was overcome with fury, picked a panga with which he slit the deceased throat, then watched him bleed to death.
And as a cover-up measure, the detectives established the suspect, then dragged the body to the said scene where he covered it with a heap of plastics before setting it ablaze.
The suspect is in custody pending the forensic DNA outcome.
