Court To Rule On Agnes Tirop Murder

The court will make a ruling on the application after receiving submissions from the defense, as the prosecution has objected to his release on bond. The court, however, will commence hearing of the case after the ruling on the bond application is made.

Ibrahim Rotich, who is the suspect in the murder of Agnes Tirop, the distance running world champion, will know whether he will be released on bond. At that point, Justice Reuben Nyaundi told the parties that the court would make decisions after receiving submissions from the defense.

The court, however, ordered the family of the late Tirop to have custody of all her property until the matter is heard and determined.

In the application, the state counsel argued that the accused might influence, threaten, or interfere with witnesses if released. The prosecution said it has more than ten witnesses. She

was already a rising star when she met her death at only 25 years old. Rotich was the main suspect after being the last person to be seen with Tirop before she died. Rotich, who was trying to flee to a neighboring country, was caught in Mombasa after two days of trailing.
