Former Ruaraka OCS Nahashon Mutua has been sentenced to death after he was found guilty of killing a Miraa trader in 2013.

High court Judge Stella Mutuku on Thursday said the prosecution has proved its case beyond reasonable doubt adding that Martin Koome received inhumane treatment and there is no doubt that Mutua caused his death.

“The Prosecution has proved beyond reasonable doubt that the police caused the deceased suffering while in cells which caused his death,”she said

In a High Court ruling last year,  Mutua was found guilty of killing Koome, an inmate at Ruaraka police station.

He tried to frame a Kevin Odhiambo, another inmate at the station, for the murder.

Mutua has 14 days to appeal the ruling.
