Police officers linked to the murder of the Kianjakoma brothers have finally been charged with the murder.
Officers; Benson Mbuthia, Consolota Kariuki, Nicholas Cheruiyot, Martin Wanyama, Lilian Cherono and James Mwanikiwere pleaded not guilty before justice Daniel Ogembo.
The six accused wanted the bodies exhumed and an inquest be conducted first before they take plea an application that was opposed by the prosecution.
The suspects had not taken plea since they were first arraigned on August 17.
They police officers had been detained at Capitol Hill police station pending conclusion of investigations into the case.
Earlier, state appointed lawyers representing the accused withdrew from the case after it emerged that the six had hired other lawyers to represent them.
Meanwhile the prosecution has asked the court to have the four male officers be remanded at Industrial Area while their female counterparts be held at Lang’ata Women’s Prison pending any application before the court.
Lawyer Danstan Omari said that they have no objection as to where they want the accused be detained.
