Police accused of killing man in cell to face trial
The deceased was allegedly hit several times with a rod and his head immersed in water. He was locked up in the cell, even after sustaining serious injuries.
After investigations, the Independent Policing Oversight Authority recommended that Mr. Mutua be arrested and charged with murder. The DPP concurred with IPOA and directed prosecution.
Witnesses told Justice Stella Mutuku that before Koome was taken to hospital, he had been beaten by then OCS, Mutua. Most of the witnesses who testified were in the cell on the fateful night.
