Judy Wangui and car hire dealer Michael Githae, the key suspects in the murder of businesswoman Mary Wambui will answer to charges on Monday.
Mary Wambui Kamangara’s body was found in a dam in Juja on 27th January 2019. The cause of death determined as blunt force trauma to the head in which the husband and his mistress were implicated.
The suspects appeared before High Court judge Christine Meoli in Kiambu on Tuesday afternoon but the plea-taking was postponed.
It was deferred after Wambui’s lawyer Cliff Ombeta failed to attend court.
Mathenge’s lawyer Sam Ombutu told the court that he was not ready since he took up the case on Tuesday. He said he needed time to familiarise himself with the matter.
Ombutu appealed to the court to allow the two suspects to be remanded at Muthaiga police station due to the proximity to the court.
The prosecution led by Christine Mbevi were not opposed to the deferring of the case.
However, the prosecution sought to have the first suspect remanded at Muthaiga police station and the second suspect at Pangani police station.
Justice Meoli said she will be away from the court from tomorrow and the plea should be taken on Monday next week when it is her criminal cases day.
Last week, Kori was released from police custody due to lack of evidence to charge him.
