Omar Lali, boyfriend to deceased Keroche heiress released

Freed after weeks in detention

Omar Lali, boyfriend to deceased Keroche heiress Tecra Muigai, with his daughter.

Omar Lali, the named boyfriend to deceased Keroche Breweries heiress Tecra Muigai is a free man after a decision by the courts on Wednesday.

A Lamu court declined to continue Mr Lali's detention by police despite claims that investigations into the death of Ms Muigai had not been concluded.

The suspect was placed in detention on May 4 after the family of the late Tecra opposed claims that she died as a result of a fatal fall.

The courts released him on a Sh300,000 bond.

4 reasons for releasing Omar Lali

The courts outlined four main reasons why Mr Lali could not continue to be detained beyond the 21 days already served in police custody.

In addition to the 21 days already served, the courts also ruled that detectives had already visited the crime scene thrice and it would be unfair to detain the suspect to allow further visits.

Third, DCI's request for time to extract phone records was found to be unsubstantial grounds to continue to hold the suspect.

Fourth, Mr Lali was found not to be a threat to the ongoing toxicology investigation.
