A suspect in the murder of a woman who was found dead in a Kilimani apartment last Thursday has been arrested.
Joe Irungu was questioned at the Kilimani police station over the killing of 29-year-old Monica Kimani.
The woman's lifeless body was found in a bathtub at her house by relatives who went to check on her on Friday.
A senior police officer at Kilimani told the Star that an inquiry was launched immediately after the lady was killed.
She was found inside a bathtub by her brother who came visiting.
The brother told police they had to break into the house having failed to get a response after knocking several times.
They were shocked to find the body in the bathroom with a slit neck. Monica lived alone.
The link between her and the suspect is yet to be established.
An officer at Kilimani said Irungu was picked up after hospital authorities informed police of a patient with a bullet wound.
Last Saturday, Irungu reported to Lang’ata police that he had been shot at by men on a motorbike. He said he sustained chest wounds.
Irungu was recently engaged
to a popular TV anchor. Videos of the same were shared widely on social media.
