Breakthrough In Moi Student Ivy Wangeci Murder Case as Court Makes Stern Ruling Against the Suspect

An Eldoret High Court has again denied the murder suspect behind the brutal killing of Moi University medical student Ivy Wangeci.

The 31-year-old suspect Naftali Kinuthia will remain in custody as he awaits final verdict on the murder charges.

According to Judge Stephen Githinji, he could not give bail to the suspect citing that the circumstances which led to him being denied bail twice when he had requested for the same had not changed.

When he first applied for a bail on July 21, Kinuthia, through his lawyer Vincet Githaiga stated that he is not a flight risk hence he could attend court hearings without failure.

The family of Ivy had on many occasions together with the prosecution and counsel representing them opposed Kinuthia's application for the bail or bond.

Ivy was killed in 2019 by Kinuthia suspected to be her boyfriend after he hacked her to death outside the institution.

The case have faced a lot of hurdles where it has been postponed for five times leading the family to allege that there was a deliberate scheme to delay hearing case against Kinuthia.

Judge Githinji gave the defense 14 days to appeal.
