Four police officers charged with killing city lawyer, two others

Four police officers have been charged with the murder of lawyer Willie Kimani, his client Josphat Mwenda and taxi driver Joseph Muiruri.

The four denied the charges when they appeared before High Court Judge Jessie Lessit on Monday.

The court directed the police officers, represented by lawyer Cliff Ombeta, to apply for bond after a month as police are yet to complete taking statements from witnesses.

The four are Fredrick Leliman, Leonard Mwangi, Silvia Wanjiku and Stephen Cheburet.

They are alleged to have murdered Mr Kimani, his client and taxi driver on the night of June 23 at Soweto area in Mlolongo, Machakos County.
