A 28-year-old married woman is accused of killing her partner, who died during coitus at his home.
Winfred Mueni was charged with manslaughter of Titus Njoroge Kimani, 30, in Baba Dogo estate in Ruaraka, Nairobi, on September 22.
Mueni is accused of unlawfully killing Kimani, who went unconscious before he was taken to the hospital, where he was declared dead.
The State prosecutions office filed charges against Mueni under the doctrine of “last seen with” because she was the last person with the deceased before he passed away.
The suspect, a beautician, had been married for two years but was also secretly dating Kimani.
The main evidence in the prosecution’s case against Mueni is a used condom that was found at their bedside and the deceased’s postmortem report.
Her spouse is also named as a crucial witness against her, according to Nation.
It all began the night before, Mueni and Kimani had parted ways at a club.
Upon entering the club to see if her husband was present, she discovered him surrounded by people planning for a funeral.
After the meeting, which finished at around one in the morning, Mueni’s husband left her to go home. She was left drinking with friends at the bar.
Soon later, her clandestine lover Kimani showed up at the same bar, and they carried on having drinks.
Mueni left the club and arrived home at around 3 a.m. Her husband was asleep.
After waking up and eating breakfast at approximately 6 a.m., her husband left for the funeral in Limuru, Kiambu County.
Later, at about seven in the morning, Mueni left the house to go to her boyfriend’s home.
Mueni told the DCI that Kimani began to experience breathing difficulties, coughing, and weakness during coitus.
She told the detectives that he grew weaker and fell on her. She said the deceased banged his head on the frame of the bed before passing out.
Mueni rushed out and called for assistance, and Kimani’s friends came and found him unconscious and nude.
Kimani was rushed to the hospital, where he was declared dead.
The colleagues and relatives of the deceased escorted Mueni to the Ruaraka police station, where the incident was reported, and she was arrested.
Mueni denied the accusations made against her before Senior Principal Magistrate Hellen Okwani at the Makadara Law Courts.
She was freed on KSh 500,000 bail and an equivalent surety.
The case will be mentioned on February 22 before the hearing on May 30, 2024.
Witnesses in the case include Kimani’s family members who witnessed Mueni entering the deceased’s home.
