Jacque Maribe and Jowie Irungu must answer for the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani, the High court has ruled.
Justice Grace Nzioka on Wednesday afternoon said the Prosecution had produced enough evidence to put the former lovers on defense.
“I am satisfied that the prosecution has adduced evidence requiring to put each of the two accused persons on their defence,” Justice Nzioka ruled.
She delivered the ruling virtually from her current workstation in Naivasha High Court.
Jowie Irungu, through his lawyer Hassan Nandwa, informed the court that he will call one witness to defend him.
Jacque Maribe on her part plans to call four witnesses. She will also take the stand.
So far, the court has heard testimonies from over 30 witnesses.
The matter will be heard on May 11 and 12, 2023.
