    14-year-old jailed for killing brother-in-law

    Published on

    A grade four student, 14, and his sister, Lucy Njeri, 27, a chang’aa dealer, were found guilty in the High Court of Eldoret of killing the boy’s brother-in-law Jacob Kioni three months ago with a kitchen knife.

    The boy was accused of stabbing his brother-in-law with a kitchen knife while trying to break up an argument between the deceased and his sister over a cup of chang’aa.

    Unfortunately, the rescue efforts were in vain, and the victim passed away at the Moisbridge Sub County hospital from severe injuries.

    In order to undergo a mental and age examination before filing a plea, Justice Ogola ordered that the suspects be taken to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret for checkup.

    Judge Eric Ogola has ruled that the youngster stays in detention at the government facility until it can be proven that he may be freed on a bond without risks.

    On November 17, when the probation officer’s report will be made available in court, the judge ordered that the case be brought up.
