New Twist in a Murder Case as a Witness exposes a fierce neighbor

A farmer from Embu has denied to killing his brother in An Embu court on Jan 14, 2019 in Kevote.

John Murithi was testifying in a case he is charged with fighting with Francis Njagi the deceased .

Report from the witnesses indicated that he was drunk while fighting his late brother and didn't know if he had killed him.

"I drink daily about two cups of alcohol, I was drunk the day my brother died and i can't remember killing him," Murithi said

However, Murithi said he learnt that they shared different mother with the deceased but same father.

The court heard from Murithi that there was land disputes but had not reached out of control.

Tasiana Mutitu who was married to the deceased brought a new twist to the case as she testified in a new angle.

Tasiana was on record saying a neighbor only known to her as Ndeke, emerged in her homestead accusing Murithi of stealing his macadamia. He was holding a panga

Later, he reappeared at around 8:00pm with a company of two unfamiliar people and requested to leave with Murithi to try settle their differences in a bar.

"He said he will buy him more alcohol to teach him the results of drunkenness." Tasiana said

Tasiana added that was the last day she saw him.
