Arrest warrant issued for the landlord where woman stabbed her husband

In August of last year, a 36-year-old lady is accused of fatally stabbing her estranged husband in the landlord’s home, and the Eldoret High Court has issued a warrant for the landlord’s arrest.

Charles Kariuki disobeyed a court order to testify about the murder occurrence, thus Justice Reuben Nyakundi ordered the officer in charge of the Langas police station to make Charles an arrest.

After returning home from a club on the evening of August 21, 2022, Winnie Maina, who is currently free on bond, is suspected of killing her husband Wycliffe Miriti in cold blood at their Elgon View estate in Eldoret town.

When the accused—represented by Attorney Evans Miyienda—appeared in court, she refuted the murder charge.

The deceased worked for a multinational beverage firm with its headquarters located in Eldoret as a senior logistics officer.

She rushed her critically ill spouse to the hospital the same day she was arrested after stabbing him multiple times with a knife.

The landlord was summoned to testify in the murder case, but he never showed up in court, as State Counsel Mark Mugun pointed out to the court.

Mugun accused the landlord of being the reason behind the murder case’s delay, claiming that since last year, he has obstructed their attempts to bring the matter to a quicker hearing and resolution.

Mugun accused the landlord of being the reason behind the murder case’s delay, claiming that since last year, he has obstructed their attempts to bring the matter to a quicker hearing and resolution.

He begged the judge to issue an arrest warrant for the landlord, accusing him of being impolite and ignoring a summons that had been delivered to him to appear in court.

A G4 security guard told the court how, on that fateful night, he drove to the couple’s house in response to the landlord setting off an alarm.

According to facts acquired at the couple’s home, Geoffrey Rono informed Justice Nyakundi that the two arrived from a nearby tavern at 4:30 am before getting into a fight.

He testified in court that they pursued the vehicle and saw it parked at an Eldoret private hospital.

Rono related that while he was in the hospital, he assisted the accused in getting the deceased into a wheelchair before he was sent to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital, where he passed away from his knife wounds.

On November 21, 2023, Justice Nyakundi ordered that the case be discussed.
