Police in Murang’a are detaining a woman and her lover accused of killing a two and a half-year-old baby seen as an impediment to their marriage.
Mildred Imaili Musya and Stephen Kamau from Kabui village, appeared before Kiambu Resident Magistrate Sheila Nyaga, who allowed police to detain them for two weeks to conclude investigations.
They were arrested at the weekend following death of Sibling Matsitasa, whose body was discovered at a river bank.
The court was told the woman had confessed to neighbors that she drowned her child in River Mathioya to please her suitor.
Ignatius Ewoi, a detective from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations told court police believed the two had information that could help him in the investigations.
“The police believe the suspects have information that could help unravel mystery around the death of the minor, who was Imaili’s child.”
