The primary suspect in the murder of LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba, Jackton Odhiambo, will be charged.
The judge also required Jackton Odhiambo to undergo a mental examination before entering a plea.
On February 8, he is anticipated in court again where he will face murder charges for the death of late model and fashion icon, Edwin Chiloba.
The Office of the Director of Public Investigations would prefer to press murder charges against Odhiambo, according to State Counsel David Fedha, who informed Senior Principal Magistrate, Richard Odenyo that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations has completed segments of its investigation.
Fedha argued that the DCI had no evidence connecting the four more suspects, including three juveniles and bodybuilder Dennis Litali, to the murder. He also asked the court to release the four suspects.
To record additional comments, the three minors must still appear once a month for three months at the DCI offices in Eldoret South.
On January 9, the Court gave the police permission to keep the five accused suspects for an additional 21 days while the murder investigation went on.
The DCI also needed the time to gather DNA evidence from the suspects for forensic testing and analysis in relation to their suspected involvement in the gruesome killing of the deceased.
Chiloba was a clothing fashion and design student in his fourth year at the University of Eldoret.
His lifeless body was discovered in a metal container alongside the Kipkenyo-Kaptinga road in the Kapseret sub-County of Uasin Gishu County.
Government pathologist Johansen Oduor performed an autopsy, which found that Chiloba succumbed from asphyxiation suffocation which is basically lack of oxygen.
