Six police officers accused of murdering two Kianjokoma brothers are back in court and are expected to take plea.
The latest report comes when High Court dismissed the application by the six officers connected to the murder of the slain two Kianjokoma brothers, to have their bodies exhumed.
On Wednesday, Justice Weldon Korir further refused to prevent the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) from charging the six suspects.
It is allegedd the suspects had filed a petition at the Milimani Law Courts on Thursday, August 26, through their attorney Danstan Omari, eyeing the interdiction of the prosecution to allow grounds for fresh probes and autopsy.
Seven days ago, they were held for two weeks to allow detectives complete their investigations.
They had interdicted to provide fresh grounds for their prosecution.
Benson Njiru, 22, and Emmanuel Mutura, 19, were nabbed for allegedly violating the 10pm-4am curfew on August 1, away from their family shop in Kianjokoma trading centre.
However, on August 3, the two brothers’ bodies were discovered at the Embu Level 5 Hospital mortuary.
