A suspect in the murder of a woman who was found dead in a Kilimani apartment last Thursday has been arrested.

Joe Irungu was questioned at the Kilimani police station over the killing of 29-year-old Monica Kimani.

The woman’s lifeless body was found in a bathtub at her house by relatives who went to check on her on Friday.

A senior police officer at Kilimani told the Star that an inquiry was launched immediately after the lady was killed.

She was found inside a bathtub by her sister who came visiting.


The sister told police they had to break into the house having failed to get a response after knocking several times.

They were shocked to find the body in the bathroom with a slit neck. Monica lived alone.
