Eric Musila, an Administration Police officer in the VIP Protection Unit, was on Friday acquitted by a Naivasha court after a three-year trial.

According to the judge, the evidence presented against Musial was shoddy and weak which prompted the court to acquit him.

The AP officer had been accused of killing his wife Chelele alongside Eldoret-based land surveyor Eliud Kipchirchir Yego.

Witnesses

He had been found guilty of killing Yego in a judgement that was delivered at the Kisumu Law Courts.

In June 2016, witnesses who testified in Chelele’s murder case told a Naivasha court the couple's marriage had been rocked by claims of infidelity.

According to Damaris Chepkemoi, a close friend of Chelele, the musician had accused her husband of infidelity before she was found dead.

The court also heard that Chelele’s then estranged husband was seen with her a day before she disappeared.
