A student at St. Joseph’s Nyabigena Boys High School in Kisii could face murder charges following the death of his colleague last week.
Form four student Isaiah Mirinya, a school prefect, has been in police custody since February 27 after he was accused of beating up a form three student to death.
Mirinya allegedly found the form three student reading a bible at 7:00 am on 26th February and an altercation ensued.
He is reported to have kicked the decead severally on the head and the stomach.
He was then arrested and taken to the Nyamarambe Police Station over the murder of Kevin Omwando.
Mirinya was arraigned in a Kisii court where sleuths asked for more time to investigate the matter.
“We want more that time to complete investigations, a postmortem, mental assessment, recording of statements and gather more evidence,” the Prosecution said.
Ogembo Resident Magistrate Gloria Barasah granted the application to hold him for five more days.
The suspect is likely to be arraigned at the Kisii High Court to answer to the charges.
