The wife of a Dutch tycoon has been accused of killing her husband, Tob Cohen.
A court in Kenya postponed a plea-taking by Kenya’s Sarah Wairimu Kamotho.
“First, I want to take time to make a ruling on the issues you conversed before me (referring to the lawyers). Those are issues I can’t do it on this court. I will therefore defer, taking of the plea for the accused person until Tuesday the first of October (2019)”, said High Court Judge, Stella Mutuku.
I will therefore defer, taking of the plea for the accused person until Tuesday 1 October.
This will enable the state prosecutors to clarify whether the defense lawyer of Kamotho has a right to defend his client.
It emerged that the defense lawyer, Philip Murgor, is a state prosecutor.
The Kenyan High Court will continue to keep Kamotho in the Lang’ata Women’s Prison, where she is being held in custody.
Cohen, a former CEO of Philips Electronics East Africa, was last seen alive at his home in July. His body was found in a septic tank at his property on September 13.
