A 13-year-old child was on Friday charged with defiling a six year old child.

The accused, who dropped out of school in Standard Three in Buuri, Meru County, is said to have committed the offence between January and March this year.

On the first day, the accused was said to have entered the house of the girl’s grandmother through the window.

He forced the complainant to lie by the stomach after threatening to kill her. He often threatened the complainant whenever she was on her way home from school or while going to the shop.

The court heard that the accused used to take the complainant to the maize plantation where he defiled her.

The girl had difficulty answering call of nature which alarmed her teachers and upon interrogation, she revealed that she had been sexually abused.

Police officers took the girl to hospital where she was admitted.

The accused was arrested on August 17. He pleaded not guilty before magistrate Joseph Karanja. He is under Meru police custody awaiting probation officer report.

The case will be mentioned on August 26.
