Omar Lali, the boyfriend of Keroche Breweries heiress Tecra Muigai, has been charged in a Lamu court over her murder.
She died on May 2 at a private house in Shella, Lamu Island where she was staying with Mr Lali.
After falling, a source said, Tecra was taken to a local dispensary and later airlifted to Nairobi for treatment, but she succumbed to her injuries.
Following her death, Mr Lali was arrested by police on suspicion that he had pushed Ms Muigai to her death.
There were reports that there was an argument between them before she fell, a claim that Mr Lali’s lawyer has vehemently rejected.
A court in May had rejected an application to continue holding Mr Lali in detention despite an application by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) .
Sad. Money can make people think they own other people. I think this is a case of the rich trumping on the poor. When you go ask for support from the rich, they are bound to step on your head.
But the post mortem on Tecra's body revealed signs of foul play.
So,the were able to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that he killed her
Guy was released
He says he's planning to visit her grave to pay his last respects
