Lawrence Warunge, the murder suspect who confessed to killing his parents, 12-year old brother, his cousin and their farmhand in January, has now been confirmed fit to stand trial.

This follows a psychiatric report released by Mathari Mental Hospital, confirming that the 22-year-old can now answer to his crimes.

Warunge who told homicide detectives that he was inspired by a movie series ‘Killing Eve’ to end the lives of the five will plead to murder charges today (Wednesday) at the Kiambu high court.

He told police that his parents were “satanic and killers” hence deserved to die.

He had been declared unfit by the same court in late January, with his plea-taking, halted following a mental assessment at the same hospital.

At the time, the prosecution told the court that he was on medication for mental illness. He had claimed that his victims had all conspired to speak ill of him.
