Omari Lali, the boyfriend of the late Tecra Muigai is set to be released by 2 pm Wednesday, 27th May.
This came after a Lamu Court declined to extend the detention of Omar Lali on Tuesday, May 26.
Tecra’s lawyers wanted the court to extend Lali’s detention but the court did not find a reason to. Detectives taking care of the case said that they have visited the crime scene but they never came up with no evidence.
Lali has been detained at Lamu Police Station following a ruling that investigations into the death of Ms Muigai had not been concluded.
“They are allowed to detain the suspect as long as they allow him access to legal advice from his advocates,”
Tecra passed away weeks ago at an apartment she was living with her boyfriend Lali. She succumbed to injuries that she sustained after falling down the stairs.
She was laid to rest at a private ceremony, on Saturday, May 16.
Some of the leaders who were present during the ceremony included: ODM Leader Raila Odinga, Senators James Orengo, Moses Wetangula, George Khaniri and Governor Lee Kinyanjui.
Lali had asked to be included to the funeral but the family did not grant him his wish.
