Mother of Slain College Girl Attacks Murder suspect in court

Attacking the suspected killer

Suspected killer Mustafa Idd

The mother of a student who as brutally murdered last month attacked the suspected killer in court.

Mrs Beatrice Wanyotta confronted Mustafa Idd, 31, the suspect linked to the murder of her daughter Emma Wanyotta, as he was being escorted by two police officers to the court cells.

Mr Mustafa was being escorted by police officers on Monday in court when Mrs Wanyotta butted blows on the suspect.

The furious mother held the suspect by his collar as officers tried to shield him from more attacks.

Judge's warning

High Court Judge Stephen Githinji warned Ms Wanyotta that he will order for her arrest and prosecution if she repeats her action the next time she comes to court.

The court will not allow such kind of behaviour to happen here again. If you repeat the same mistake, you will find yourself in the dock,” said Githinji.

In her defense, the woman told the judge said she was angry because the case was dragging, adding that she wants justice for her daughter.

Whenever I come to court for my daughter’s case, the matter is always postponed ostensibly to pave the way for mental assessment of the accused person,” she said.

Brutal killing

Justice Githinji ruled that the case will not proceed until the suspect is taken to hospital for mental assessment.

The suspect should be taken to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret for psychiatric examination before he can be brought back to take plea,” he directed.

Mustafa is accused of killing Ms Wanyotta on September 30 in Moi’s Bridge town in Uasin Gishu County.

Her mutilated body was discovered lying in a pool of blood on a farm next to their home in the outskirt of the town.
