Major Peter Mugure to be detained for 21 days

Nanyuki law court magistrate Lucy Mutahi has ruled that Peter Mugure, the KDF soldier who allegedly killed his wife and two children will remain in custody for 21 days.

After 10 minutes recess Mutahi gave a ruling after investigators requested that they need more time to further make the case watertight.

Mugure and another suspect called Collins will remain in police custody in Nanyuki and Naromoru police stations espectively for 21 days.

“For the interest of justice, the first accused shall be detained at Nanyuki police station for 21 days and the other accused will be detained at Naromoru police station for 21 days,” said Mutahi.

The case will be mentioned again on December 9, 2019. Kenya Defence Forces have since sacked Major Mugure.
