• Last week, the DPP approved murder charges against Maxine and she is expected to take a plea on Wednesday this week after being taken for mental assessment.
The miscellaneous file against rally driver Maxine Wahome has been officially closed.
The court allowed the application by state to close the file since she had already been produced before the high court which is now seized of the matter
Maxine is facing murder charges for allegedly killing her late boyfriend Asad Khan.
The case was mentioned virtually before Senior Principal Magistrate Benard Ochoi who allowed the application by the state to withdraw the miscellaneous application.
The prosecutor informed the court that Maxine had been produced before the High Court last week and was expected to take a plea later this week.
Maxine joined the virtual proceedings from Kilimani police station alongside her lawyer who confirmed that she was indeed in custody.
The lawyer also asked the court to refund the cash bail that was paid to the court in December so that they can use it to top up for bail at the high court.
The police had initially filed the miscellaneous application asking the court to detain Maxine for 14 days to allow them complete investigations into the offence of grievous harm.
At the time, Khan was admitted to a hospital and was in critical condition as a result of a domestic fight they allegedly had in their house that led to her arrest.
The court declined to allow her detention and released her on bail then ordered her to report to the investigating officer weekly to assist with investigations.
The rally driver through her lawyers told the court that she was a victim in the matter claiming that Khan injured himself on the leg when he was assaulting her.
Unfortunately, Khan passed away and the file was forwarded to the DPP for review on whether the charges could be enhanced from grievous harm to murder.
