Police seek to detain city lawyer Assa Nyakundi longer over son’s death
City lawyer Assa Nyakundi was on Thursday arraigned at the Makadara law courts to face accusations of shooting his son dead at his Muthaiga home.
Prosecution requested Chief Magistrate Nyaga to detain the suspect for one more day in order to interrogate him, take finger prints and to conduct a scene of crime reconstruction.
The defense did not oppose the application, but wanted reassurance that he will be arraigned on Friday.
The lawyer shot his son Joseph Nyakundi on March 17 near his Muthaiga home. Joseph was pronounced dead on arrival at the Aga Khan hospital.
Mr Nyakundi claimed to have fired the shot accidentally from inside the car. However, investigations suggest the shot was fired from outside the car.
