Joseph Irungu alias Jowie and former Citizen TV news anchor Jacqueline Maribe will have to wait a little longer to know their fate in the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.
The two were set to know whether they have a case to answer in the murder case of Monica Kimani.
On Friday 10, February, Lady Justice Grace Nzioka was scheduled to deliver her ruling on whether the two have a case to answer in the gruesome murder.
However, the judge postponed the decision to a later date.
According to information from the court’s registry, the judge was held up and could not deliver the ruling as had been scheduled. The accused were informed they will be notified of the new date.
In December last year, the two urged the court to acquit them in a case for lack of evidence.
In their final submissions, the two through their defence lawyers led by Prof Hassan Nandwa told trial judge Grace Nzioka they were maliciously charged with murder.
Maribe and Jowie denied killing Monica, instead claiming that she might have been killed by an unknown man at her house on a fateful night in 2018.
