Appearing before Judge Mary Kasango in a virtual session, Karani pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.

On Tuesday, Karani failed to assert his rights after Kiambu court deputy clerk Wilson Radin ordered him to receive a lawyer to facilitate the trial.

The turn of events came weeks after Karani recounted how he murdered Nyokabi on Wednesday April 14, before throwing his body into a thicket.

According to the police report, Karani revealed how he plotted to kill Nyokabi after learning that she was having a relationship with someone else.

Karani reportedly told police that he invited Nyokabi so they could sit down and work out their relationship issues – and even bought his favorite wine.

He waited until the deceased was drunk before making a detour near Mang’u high school and allegedly killed her.
