The suspects arrested in connection with the murder of a businessman in Nanyuki, Laikipia County will remain in police custody for 14 more days.

This is after a court in Nanyuki granted the prosecution’s request for more time to detain the suspects pending conclusion of investigations.

The accused; Jane Wanjiku and her father Charles Macharia, were presented before Nanyuki Magistrate Njeri Thuku but did not take plea.

The first suspect, Jane Wanjiku, pleaded with the court to release her father arguing that he had nothing to do with the murder of businessman George Mwangi Gachibi.

According to the police report, the two were found with a vehicle and electronic goods stolen from the deceased.

The body of the deceased businessman was found lying in a pool of blood on Tuesday by his employees who had gone to check on him at his house after he failed to report to work and their calls went unanswered.

The main door to his rented house had been broken and left open by the assailants believed to have murdered him.

Laikipia County Criminal Investigations Officer, Peter Muinde said that police traced the car signal to a place called Kirwara in Thika Sub-County, where they nabbed the two suspects.

The suspects, who are facing charges of murder and robbery with violence, will appear in court on December 20, 2018 to take plea.
