Lawrence Simon Warunge Njoroge, a 23-year-old university student who confessed to the grisly murder of his family members, has revealed details of how his girlfriend helped with the executions.

While speaking to investigators, Lawrence confessed that his girlfriend, Sarah Muthoni bought the knives he used for the murders.

Sarah is said to have purchased two knives for her boyfriend without knowing why he needed them.

A delay in delivering the knives saw Lawrence’s two sisters escape the premeditated execution as they reported back to school.
