According to Justice Teresia Matheka the Police are to blame for the acquittal of the suspect after failing to establish a case against the suspect.
The judge faulted the police decisions of being in a rush to charge a suspect before having gathered enough evidence to sustain the charge.
“This case is a classic example of the failure by the investigators to investigate the case and to proceed to charge the first and obvious suspect, without anything to clutch on. The mere fact that the accused and the husband had quarrelled earlier did not make the case open and shut,” noted the judge.
She continued “At least there ought to have been an attempt at investigations to establish whether it was actually the accused who had inflicted the fatal injuries.”
“From the foregoing, it is evident that the prosecution established that there was a murder, but as for the person who committed it, the prosecution brought the accused to court on the basis of suspicion,” she neighbours, testified in court and said he found the man lying unconscious on the floor bleeding from the head while his trousers were pulled down.photo Courtesy
