Detectives in Thika West Sub-County have arrested the suspect who allegedly shot dead his brother's wife in Landless estate Thika last week.

They have also recovered a zceska pistol believed to have been used in the murder.

The suspect, Charles Mbogo, is said to have shot the deceased, Hellen Njoki, in head after a quarrel within their family house in Happy Valley Landless.

Immediately after the incident, the suspect went into hiding and has been on the run since then and was nabbed on Sunday in his hideout in Shanzu area, Kisauni Mombasa County.

According to residents, Mbogo worked as a welder in the area and none was aware that he possessed a gun or whether he was a licenced gun holder.

The deceased and her husband had just settled into the homestead a day before the incident from their rented house in Ruaka Kiambu County.

Njoki, who is in her mid twenties, was a nurse in Nairobi and left behind a 2-year toddler.

Mbogo will be arraigned in court tomorrow.
