The body of Monica who operated her family business in South Sudan was found in a bathtub, with her throat slit and her hands tied to the back.
Sources told www.upesinews.co.e that prior to her brutal death she was scheduled to visit Dubai.
Her body was discovered by her brother who had unsuccessfully tried to phone her and opted to visit her house only to stumble on her body.
Police said they narrowed down to three individuals who were last in the deceased’s house and that is how they settled on the man who is known to operate between Nairobi and Dubai where he is said to be working in the security sector.
One of the people who had gone to the house, police said, is Monica’s neighbour who visited and left while the other runs errands and went there to deliver a parcel.
And when the suspect was arrested, he had a gunshot wound and claimed that he was shot somewhere in Lang’ata, but police have confirmed that there was no shooting at the particular location.The suspect whose name is Joe Irungu is being treated in hospital on Tuesday under police guard
