Lawrence Warunge, a 22 year old boy accused of killing his family has been declared unfit to stand trial.
This follows a mental exam conducted on the suspect on Monday.
Kiambu Chief Magistrate Patricia Gichuhi also freed Warunge’s girlfriend Sarah Muthomi.
Muthomi was freed after the prosecution stated that they intend to keep her as a state witness.
Warunge and Muthomi had been detained at the Gigiri and Muthaiga Police stations respectively.
The two had been accused of killing Warunge’s father, mother, brother, cousin and male worker at their house.
