According to Nation, the police gave the murder suspect the opportunity to call a friend or a lawyer but he chose to have a mother of five.

In front of him, Karani, who also ran a sandwich business, described how he tortured Catherine Nyokabi to death last week on Wednesday.

The clerk told investigators that he had been dating the deceased, the mother of one child, for at least four years but allegedly was not faithful to her.

Last week, he told police, he asked Nyokabi to delete a photo of his alleged girlfriend because it hurt his feelings.

But Nyokabi who left a 6-year-old child refused to remove the photo.

The Clerk’s original plan was from the other man’s way but he later changed his mind and instead decided to get rid of Nyokabi.

On material day, he told officials, he asked to meet his ex-girlfriend in Ndarugo later that evening. Nyokabi was forced into the trap of Karani’s death.

When he was completely drunk, the suspect allegedly strangled him with his tape and then a rope.

After completing the task, Karani who also runs a transport business traveled to Tola Estate in Witeithie, Juja constituency where he intended to dump his body. His car got stuck in the mud and this is where he cut off his body and threw it in the mud.
