Kori, 41, who wore a black jacket, was seen trying to control his tears at the Kiambu court as the hearing of the case went on.

When he was brought before the court, Kori was doing fine until his lawyer started presenting his case before Kiambu senior principal magistrate Stella Atambo.

He then took out his white handkerchief and began wiping his tears.

Kori is among the three suspects in the murder of Wambui.

His mistress Judy Wangui and a car hire businessman Michael Mathenge, who admitted to having helped ferry Wambui’s body to a dam in Juja, was also in court.

Police are seeking 14 more days to continue detaining the three suspects over the murder.

The prosecution told Kiambu senior principal magistrate that investigators need more time to complete investigations which is a complex matter.

But defence lawyers opposed the application, saying nothing is being done by police.
