Jackton Odhiambo, the key suspect in the murder of LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba, will be arraigned before an Eldoret court Monday morning alongside three other suspects who are in custody.

Police are expected to submit a miscellaneous application asking for more days to complete investigations before they formally charge them with murder.

Odhiambo who was arrested on Friday confessed to killing Chiloba for allegedly cheating on him.

Chiloba’s caretaker Alex Nyamwea said that Odhiambo called him using Chiloba’s phone on January 4, informing him that he was vacating the house they lived in.

And true to his words, Odhiambo vacated the house with immediate effect.

The police are investigating a possible love triangle after the main suspect Jackton Odhiambo confessed that he was driven to commit the murder after finding out Chiloba had another partner.

Chiloba's body was discovered in a metallic box on Kipenyo-Katinga Road in Uasin Gishu County by boda boda riders, who saw an unmarked vehicle dumping the box on the side of the road.

Elsewhere, the Sh3.5 billion Anglo Leasing case resumes hearing on Monday before the anti-corruption court.

In the case, former PSs Joseph Magari, Dave Mwangi and David Onyonka and businessmen Deepak and Rashmi Kamani, together with their father Rasmi Chamanlal have denied conspiring to defraud the Government over Sh3.5 billion.

During the last hearing in December, an officer told the court that the prosecution of the case might have been premature.

Investigating officer Ignatius Wekesa told chief magistrate Felix Kombo that charges were preferred in the absence of details concerning the existence and registration of a company (Sound Day) at the center of the trial.

“At the time the case was filed, we did not know the directors and neither were we aware that Sound Day had had previous engagements with the government of Kenya since 1989 and had been supplying security apparatus," the court heard.
