Eldoret Court has freed four other suspects who had been arrested in connection to the murder of Eldoret based fashion designer Edwin Chiloba (Kiprotich Kiptoo).
Senior Principal Richard Odenyi said Edwin Chiloba’s alleged lover Jackton Odhiambo who is the main suspect will be charged with the murder.
One of the detectives said they have finished the investigations and the suspect will likely be charged on Tuesday. The file has been forwarded the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for action.
The five suspects who have been in custody include Jackton Odhiambo who is the prime suspect, body builder Dennis Litali alongside three minors.
The court had allowed the police to hold the suspects for 21 days pending the conclusion of investigation.
Last week, a team of more than ten homicide experts led by Martin Nyuguto went to the crime scene to gather what the experts termed as a reenactment of evidence.
The team went to the scene in the company of the prime suspect in the murder Jackton Odhiambo, tracing how the body was moved from the murder scene to where it was dumped.
Chiloba’s body was found stuffed inside a metallic box along the Kipenyo-Kaptinga road within Mokombet village in Uasin Gishu County before it was identified by the police.
Chiloba, (Kiprotich Kiptoo) was buried two weeks ago at Sergoit village Elgeyo Marakwet county.
