Justice Grace Nzioka was to deliver the judgement today (Friday) but pushed it to a later date as she is unwell.

Monica’s body was found at her Lamuria Gardens Apartment on Kitale Lane off Denis Pritt Road in Kilimani.

The prosecution called 35 witnesses who testified against the two.

Prosecuting counsel, Gichui Gikui told Justice Grace Nzioka that the two were linked to the gruesome murder of the deceased.

She submitted that Irungu was on the material day seen entering Monica’s residence of Monica and proceeded to change his clothes

She said that Irungu had a gun on the fateful day and Maribe knew about it.

The prosecutor in giving her final submission said that the gun that was used was produced before the court and even the DNA report showed that the blood stains removed from Irungu indeed matched that of the deceased.

However the Maribe’s lawyer Katwa Kigen told the judge that the prosecution did not adduce evidence linking her client to the death of the deceased, which could have included mobile data, DNA examination reports among others.

He said that on the material day Jackie Maribe spent a day at the Citizen studio carrying out interviews until midnight when she joined former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko at club Fourty-Fourty.

He further submitted that the mere fact that the two were cohabiting did not mean that they jointly participated in criminal activities.
