Sarah Wairimu Kamotho is not competent to stand trial for the murder of her husband, Tob Cohen after a report released at 17:39 pm on Friday confirmed that she committed the offence just two weeks after her release from the Mathare Mental Hospital
The outcome of the trial will depend largely on how the court interprets evidence that will be presented about Sarah Wairimu Kamotho’s mental health and her state of mind when she murdered her husband.
One of Sarah Wairimu’s lawyer, Mr. Jared Omboko says that insanity was the only possible explanation for the whole murder. “I will show that the lack of motive in this case is the hallmark of a mentally ill defender,” he said.
Police have finally found the body of missing Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen in a septic tank within his compound in Kitisuru, Nairobi.
According to Director of Criminal Investigations boss George Kinoti, the late Cohen’s body was found on Friday afternoon dumped in a tank in the compound.
The 71-year-old tours and travel expert was at the time of his disappearance pursuing a divorce case with his estranged wife Sarah Wairimu Kamotho. He had also filed an assault case he had filed against his wife.
Mr. Cohen vanished between July 19 and 20 and Ms. Kamotho had told detectives that her husband had left for Thailand.
“He said he was taking a break,” Mr. Cohen’s wife further told Nation. “Lawyers were pushing him for money and he wanted to seek medical treatment.”
