Murder Case Involving Louis Otieno Takes a Fresh Twist

A court has recommended that former TV news anchor Louis Otieno be subjected to fresh probe to establish whether he was involved in the murder of Careen Chepchumba, his girlfriend who was mysteriously murdered on February 12, 2012.

The court found that police exonerated Mr Otieno of involvement in the murder even before carrying forensic analysis of his phones and of the deceased to establish where he was at the time Careen was murdered.

Ms Careen was found dead inside her apartment at Santonia Court, Kilimani and after investigations police said they did not have a suspect.

Former Kibera Resident magistrate Charles Ondiek accused the police of bungling the initial probe and recommended a public inquest by urged the Director of Public Prosecutions to direct fresh investigations to resolve the murder of Careen.

“The cause of Careen’s death was not suicide, it was not accidental. The cause of death of Careen Chepchumba Kili can not be said to be undetermined. The cause was strangulation. These are inevitable findings,” the court stated.

Ondieki further recommended that Otieno’s nail clippings be extracted for further analysis to help establish the missing link in the case.

The court has directed the police to investigate how Otieno’s nail clippings, which were to undergo analysis, were mixed up.

This was after the police said they found out that the nail clippings were of a woman, hence not Otieno’s.

Ondieki ruled that the mix-up could be because of a deliberate act or was genuine.

The court directed that Otieno presents himself to the government chemist so that samples of his nail clipping can be taken afresh.
