Omar Lali, boyfriend to the late Tecra Muigai charged with murder
Omar Lali, boyfriend to the late Tecra Muigai, was on Monday charged with murder at a Lamu court.
According to the evidence gathered by detectives, the police and the prosecutor are satisfied that the death of the late Tecra was not accidental.
Lali, according to reports, will be arraigned at the Garsen Law courts on Tuesday.
Citizen Digital understands that Lali was arrested on Monday awaiting his arraignment.
Lali is the prime suspect in the death of the late Tecra who reportedly fell in the bathroom of the house she shared with the suspect.
Lali was arrested shortly after Ms Muigai succumbed while receiving treatment.
Detectives probing the matter reportedly picked inconsistencies with his account of how the Keroche Breweries director of strategy and innovation met her death.
Lali, who has been living at Shela in Lamu with Ms. Muigai since April, initially said she tumbled down the stairs before later changing his account to say she tripped in the bathroom.
None of the versions of events were however consistent with the accounts given by responders who took Ms. Muigai to hospital.
There were reports that the couple had an argument before the fatal incident although Lali’s lawyers rejected the reports.
Tecra was picked by a helicopter chartered by her family and flown to Nairobi for treatment where she succumbed to her injuries.
