A Siaya court has ordered that Chief Inspector Sabina Kerubo be locked up for 14 days, as an investigation into the death of journalist Eric Oloo continues.
Police will be seeking to establish if, indeed, the senior policewoman was involved in the killing of the Siaya-based journalist.
Oloo was found dead in Kerubo’s house in what is believed to have been a love triangle involving the officer.
There was uproar last week when other suspects appeared in court, but Kerubo was absent.
Details obtained after a postmortem indicated that Oloo died as a result of trauma caused by injury to his head and abdomen.
“The body had a blunt injury on the head and a severe haemorrhage intra-admominally as a result of the blunt injury on the abdomen,” Government Pathologist Gabriel Juma said.
Kerubo, who is the Deputy OCS at Ugunja Police Station, is alleged to have instructed her brothers to kill her lover.
Oloo was buried on Saturday, 30th November, as his family asked the government to pursue justice for their son.
