Briton arrested over woman’s murder to be held longer

A Briton suspected of killing a Kenyan woman in Karen was arraigned at the Kibera law court on Monday morning.

Magistrate Charles Ondieki ordered that Mr Richard Alden, 53, be held for five working days to allow police to finish investigations on the incident.

Police had applied for more days to conclude investigations.

In an affidavit, the police said postmortem is yet to be done on the body of the deceased Ms Grace Wangechi.

The suspect will be held at Karen police station until Friday June 10.

Magistrate Ondieki also ordered the investigating officer to produce the postmortem report on the same day.

Police had requested for 14 days, but defence lawyer Evans Monari objected saying the suspect is distressed by the incident.

Mr Alden was arrested on Saturday afternoon when he took the deceased to Karen Hospital, saying she had shot herself.
