Court denies murder suspect bail

by Mahakamani News

Patricia Mwololo charged with murder has been denied bail after the court ruled that she is at flight risk.

The 23-year-old lady is accused of killing her student boyfriend, David Onchere who at the time of death was a 5th year Electrical Engineering student at Egerton University.

Justice Joel Ngugi indicated that the prosecution led by State Counsel Amos Chigiti proved that the lady was at flight risk and therefore likely to abscond court.

Mwololo had been on run since 11 June, 2019 when the body of the deceased had been discovered at rental house in Egerton Gate estate. A team assigned by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) caught up with her on July 23, 2019 at Kibra.

Her defence lawyer pointed out that the lady had tried to commit suicide and that her parents took her to Kibra for care and protection. However, the judge was sceptical and adamant to change the bail terms.
