A court has slapped Naftali Kinuthia, the prime suspect in the murder of Ivy Wangeci to 40 years in jail.
Issuing the sentence was Justice Stephen Githinji who noted that the offence was brutal and thus deserved a harsh sentencing.

Speaking before the court were the victims lawyers who urged the court to issue a death sentence, a plea that was rejected by the Judge saying it was not fair to do what the accused had done.
In his remarks, Kinuthia pleaded with the court for a non-custodial sentencing so as to have a second chance in life.
“Even text messages reviewed did not prove evidence of an intimate relationship and the the accused did not also prove a sexual relationship with the deceased,” said Githinji
