A former police officer has been charged with murder in Homa Bay court.
Robert Otieno, who was attached to Pangani Police Station, was charged with killing George Odhiambo 37, at Wiga Village, Kalanya Kanyango Location within Homa Bay Town.
Otieno denied committing the offence before Judge Joseph Karanja and requested to be released on bail pending hearing of the case.
The court however denied him bail after the prosecution argued that he is a dangerous man and could be harmed or killed by villagers who are baying for his blood.
The prosecutor, Vallery Ongeti said the suspect was armed with a pistol and a knife when the offence happened.
The offence is said to have been committed on November 20, 2018.
