The third suspect in the gruesome murder of George Mwangi husband to Kiambu politician Gladys Chania has been arrested.
John Muikiriria Mwangi, who went missing on the same day as the deceased was arrested at Karinga location in Gatundu bringing to three the number of suspects arrested following the cold blooded murder of Mwangi.
Mwangi’s wife Chania who was the Jubilee Party’s Kiambu Women Rep candidate is the prime suspect and has already been charged in court.
The arrest follows investigations conducted by sleuths from the homicide department, who took over investigations into the murder.
The seasoned detectives found it was too much of a coincidence that the second accused Morris Kamau Mbugua was hired on October 8, 2022, by the main suspect Gladys Njeri Mwangi Alias Chania, a day before the death and disappearance of the deceased while John Muikiriria Mwangi, went missing on the same day.
According to Chania, John Mwangi, who had worked at the home for four years allegedly failed to return home after she sent him to deposit some money on Mpesa.
A prima facie case was established against the accused, the main suspect Gladys Chania and Morris Kamau Mbugua who were charged on 2nd November 2022 at Kiambu law courts.
After conducting a thorough forensic documentation of the deceased’s house in Mang’u, detectives based at the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau, Homicide department, Forensic Crime Scene and Photographic units concluded that George Mwangi was murdered in his house before his body was dumped at Kieni forest.
Pieces of blood stained metal rods, blood soaked bed sheets, stained curtains and clothing were part of the exhibits that were recovered in the house by the sleuths based at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory.
The third suspect will be arraigned this morning at Kiambu law courts.
