Sarah Wairimu, the chief suspect in the murder of Tob Cohen, has asked the court to grant her permission to access her Kitisuru home so that she can collect her clothes, shoes, vehicle and other belonging.
Wairimu, through her lawyer Philip Murgor, says she is spending a lot of money on purchasing new clothes.
In the application filed by Murgor, Wairimu says her vehicle is not part of the investigations, and, therefore, it should be released to her.
The suspect claims she is surviving on lifts from relatives and friends and taxi rides, which she terms as expensive.
The prosecution, through Catherine Mwaniki, objected to the application, saying everything in Wairimu’s house is treated as part of exhibit in Tob Cohen’s murder case, and, therefore, should not be tampered with.
Justice Stella Mutuku declined to issue any order Wednesday, instead, asking Murgor to file a formal application that will be heard on Tuesday, November 5.
Wairimu, who in early October pleaded not guilty to killing Tob Cohen, is out on a Ksh2 million bond.
Tob Cohen, who went missing on July 19, was on September 13 found murdered, and his body dumped in an underground water tank at his Kitisuru home.Do you have any story you would like to share?
