Detectives probing the alleged murder of Keroche Breweries heiress Tecra Muigai have been given 30 more days to finalize their investigations as to whether her boyfriend, Omar Lali, who is the key suspect, has any charges to answer to or not.
The deceased was in a relationship with the 54 year old Lali with whom she was staying at a rented cottage in Shella town before the accident that claimed her life happened.
Lali told detectives that Tecra fell down a flight of stairs and hurt her head.
Appearing during a live video link court session presided over by Lamu Principal Magistrate Allan Temba on Wednesday, Omar’s legal team led by advocate Yusuf Aboubakar agreed with the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the (DCI) to give the detectives conducting the investigations a month to finalize their investigations.
Mr Lali will not however be detained during the 30 day duration of the investigations.
He was released on May 27 by the same court on a Sh 300, 000 bond and two sureties provided by his mother and brother-in-law.
Until her death on May 2 this year, Tecra was the Strategy and Innovations Director at Keroche Breweries.
She succumbed at a Nairobi hospital after sustaining injuries after apparently falling from a flight of stairs in a house she shared with Lali on April 27 this year.
Mr Lali was arrested on May 3, just a day after Tecra’s demise and remained in detention close to a month before he was released on bond on May 27.
An autopsy conducted by chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor a month ago revealed that Tecra died as a result of trauma to the left side of her face that is consistent with a fall.
She was laid to rest at her family home on Naivasha on May 16.
