Judy Wangui, one of the key suspects in the murder of Mary Wambui, has complained that detectives have been torturing her.

Through her lawyer Cliff Ombeta, Ms Wangui, told Kiambu Senior Principal Magistrate Stella Atambo that two female officers from Juja Police Station assaulted her on Friday night.

Besides causing her injuries on her thighs and upper part of the body, she alleged that the officers inserted pepper in her private parts.

She told the magistrate that she reported the matter to the OCS but it was not addressed.

This was revealed during the hearing of an application by detectives from the homicide unit who want her, her boyfriend Joseph Kori and car hire dealer Michael Githae detained for another 14 days.

The detectives who took over the investigation two days ago said they want to tighten loose ends before charging the suspects.

According to the police, there are “pending issues” which need deeper probing.

They have described the murder investigation as complex and technical.

But the defence lawyers have objected to the application, saying it’s unconstitutional and unreasonable.

They want the accused freed on bond pending the conclusion of the investigation.
