• Njuguna is expected to be arraigned at the Kiambu law courts to face murder charges.
• The two had met at the joint before moving in together as husband and wife.
A man believed to have killed his wife before stashing her body in a suitcase will on Monday be arraigned to face murder charges.
Morris Njuguna, 28, has already confessed to police that he killed Risper Ndunge, 22, and stuffed her body in a suitcase before dumping it some 500 meters away from their rented house in Mitikenda Estate on the outskirts of Ruiru town.
On that fateful day, Ndunge was working at a local restaurant together with her husband who was the chef at the eatery located along the Eastern Bypass in Ruiru, Kiambu County.
His wife of nine months worked as the cashier.
The two had met at the joint before moving in together as husband and wife.
Njuguna was arrested three days after committing the offence in his ancestral Makuyu home in Murang'a County where he had escaped to.
In his confession statement, Njuguna said Ndunge died instantly after he hit her head on a wall.
It is believed infidelity could be at the centre of the murder with neighbours claiming the young couple had quarreled the night before Ndunge was killed.
Detectives believe the man left the house for work earlier than usual the next day during which he bought a sack for Sh150 and paid via M-Pesa.
The bag is believed to be the one in which Ndunge's body was stuffed and put in a suitcase.
Njuguna is expected to be arraigned at the Kiambu law courts to face murder charges.
Elsewhere at the Milimani law courts in Nairobi, the Sh7.4 billion Triton scandal case will be mentioned before Anti-Corruption senior principal magistrate Peter Ooko.
