Police arrests murder suspect in Kitui

Must read

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.
