Why Kenyan Woman in US Was Set Free Despite Evidence Showing That She Murdered Her Housemate

A Kenyan woman living in the United States has been set free by the Court despite Prosecution linking her to the murder of her housemate. Postmortem results that were tabled before the court showed that the deceased suffered 65 injuries with the Judge describing it as a graphic.

The dead body was found in November 2018 leading to the arrest of Grace Miano, 53. A police raid on her house led to the law enforcement officers recovering a knife, poker and an axe. All these were pointed out without a doubt that the woman had committed the heinous act.

In a judgement read out by the Court, the jury decided to let her free after a medical report presented before them showed she had underlying mental health issues. A report from two consultant psychiatrists noted that she was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.

The report further suggests that Grace Miano had the disease at the time of murder which made her delusional belief that the deceased man was trying to hurt her.

Following the court ruling, the Kenyan was moved to Central Mental Hospital in Foxrock, Dublin where she will be receiving medical attention.
