Following a report tabled in court last Wednesday which showed that a pair of brown shorts belonging to murder suspect Joseph Kuria Irungu, alias Jowie, had bloodstains matching those of slain woman Monica Kimani, a new DNA evidence report has been produced to the court.
According to Government analyst Joseph Kimani, he told the court that DNA on white straps used to tie the hands of murdered businesswoman Monica Kimani not linked to Jowie.
This new report might help exonerate Irungu who was journalist Jacqueline Maribe’s fiancé.
Jowie who has maintained his innocence last week renewed his plea to be released on bail.
He said his eight-month stay in custody since he was charged with the woman’s murder was enough punishment, adding that there was no reason why he should continue being in remand while the case is going on.
However, a key witness told the court that he had left Mr Irungu with Ms. Kimani in the house on the night she was killed.
Jowie is charged alongside Jacque Maribe with murdering the businesswoman on September 19,2018.
