Joseph Kori, 41 and Judy Wangui, 36 are believed to be the culprits behind the death of 39-year-old businesswoman and wife, Mary Wambui.
The culprits were yesterday arraigned in a Kiambu court but did not take the plea. They are currently being detained for 14 days as investigations continue.
Police reveal that the deceased body was wrapped in bed sheets and put in a sack before being dumped in a dam off Toll Station on Thika Road, next to Courtesy Beach Hotel.
“Wambui had a deep cut on one side of her head and multiple bruises on both hands, indicating she had struggled before her death,” said Juja DCIO Obed Kiio.
Mr. Kori was arrested on Sunday morning after police found him in the crime scene as they collected evidence. When asked what he was doing at the scene, Mr. Kori said he was searching for his wife, who had disappeared the previous night. He added that he had been led to the scene by a post on the Kilimani Mums Facebook page indicating that a woman’s body had been found in the area.
After grilling by the police, he led them to Ms. Wangui, the mistress’ house where they found blood stained clothes inside.
