What you need to know:

  • Mr Peter Njoroge Karanja has been in custody since his arrest on September 10.

  • Cohen’s widow, Sarah Wairimu Kamotho has equally denied the murder charge and was released after depositing cash bail of Sh2 million in court.

  • The prosecution is planning to consolidate the files, although Ms Kamotho, through his lawyer Philip Murgor, said she will oppose the application.

A second suspect charged with the murder of tycoon Tob Cohen has applied to be released on bond, arguing that there is nothing compelling to deny him his freedom.
