'I Didn't Kill Her' Suspected Killer Husband Denies Murdering Olympic Athlete Agnes Tirop Jebet

Agnes Jebet Tirop was brutally murdered last month in her Elgeyo Marakwet county home by a close person suspected to be her lover. The young girl was actually buried but it turned out that family members were demanding all properties that belonged to the Olympic athlete since the lover Ibrahim Emmanuel Rotich had converted the ownership. Up to now, the court is trying all they can to see whether they can get what rightfully belonged to the daughter and follow up is being done by concerned members. Apparently, Ibrahim Rotich was detained last month after he was caught trying to escape the country days after Tirop's murder. He has been in custody and today judges arraigned him in court to answer the case. As reported by Citizen TV, Ibrahim Rotich denied murdering Agnes and basically he said that he does not know anything concerning the girl's murder. He begged to be released on bond and the judge will decide on 1st December whether he should be given the freedom or not.
