A 17-year-old male has been arrested in connection with the murder of Nairobi businesswoman Caroline Wanjiku Maina, police have confirmed.

The teenager was arrested together with a matatu tout in Kisii County after two phones stolen from the deceased were traced.

"Acting on forensic intelligence, the team drawn from the Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau, Special Service Unit, DCI Dagoretti and their Kisii counterparts, proceeded to the said village within Suneka sub-county, where two mobile phones previously paired to the deceased's simcards were tracked down," a brief from the DCI read in part.
