Two police officers were Monday charged with the murder of 14-year-old schoolgirl Kwekwe Mwandaza.
Inspector Veronicah Gitahi and Police Constable Issa Mzee denied the charge when they appeared before Mombasa High Court judge Maureen Odero.
They were each freed on a bond of Sh500,000.
The two officers were brought to court after the judge issued summons last week.
Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko had directed the two be charged with killing the schoolgirl in Kwale County.
Mr Tobiko gave the orders following separate investigations conducted by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations and the Independent Policing Oversight Authority.
The girl was shot dead at 2am on August 21, 2014, during an incident in which eight police officers stormed her family’s home at Mwawewu village in Kinango.
The police had raided the home with the aim of arresting her uncle, George Zani.
