Suspected killer surrenders to police

18 March 2013, 16:46 Kelvin Mureithi

Police in Tigania East district of Meru County are interrogating a man who recently murdered his brother, wife and two children following family differences.

Tigania East District Commissioner Mwangi Meru told reporters in his his office that the police were holding the suspect although he had sustained serious injuries on the head during a confrontation with the deceased.

He said Samwel Libono M’Kaira was taken for treatment at the Muthara district hospital and returned back to police custody.

Apparently, after committing the murder M’Kaira surrendered to the local police station although police officers had not linked him with the murder of the four people.

The D.C. said police were waiting for witnesses who could have been present when the crime took place for them to complete investigations and take the accused to court.

M’Kaira hacked four members of one family to death in an incident that shocked Kenyans.

The bodies of the deceased, Kitati Itimui, his wife Susan Kathure and their sons Jamleck and Francis Itimui were removed to the Meru level five hospital awaiting postmortem examination.
