The inquest into the death of Tecra Muigai has been put off until witnesses can appear physically in court next month.
Prosecution and defence lawyers agreed that a virtual hearing would affect the quality of witness evidence and subsequent cross examination.
They requested the magistrate for new dates on which all parties will be physically present in court.
Milimani principal magistrate Zainab Abdul
set June 9 and 10 and July 16 and 17 as the dates for the hearing.
Tecra, the daughter of Keroche Breweries boss Tabitha Karanja, died on May 2, last year at the Nairobi Hospital after she allegedly fell down steep stairs at a house in Lamu.
