A postmortem carried out on the body of Beryl Ouma has concluded that she was strangled to death as she slept and hit with a blunt object.
Beryl was allegedly killed by her husband Lyko Junior Osuri at their Kahawa Sukari home. He is still in police custody as investigations continue.
The report also revealed that Beryl had serious head injuries as a result of being hit by a metallic object at least six times, but that was not the cause of death.
Three pathologists – Joseph Ndung’u, representing Beryl’s family, Charles Muturi, representing the suspect’s family, and Government pathologist Peter Ndegwa – conducted the postmortem.
Lawyer Evans Ondieki, who spoke on behalf of the family and the doctors, said that the pathologists were unanimous in their verdict that Beryl was physically strangled.

“The doctors said this could not be an accident or treated as self-strangulation, and that it cannot be self-inflicted,” said Mr Ondieki, who was present during the postmortem.
He said the conclusion was that Beryl was killed and that it might not have been done by only one person.
“We do not want to speculate; what we want is for the police to charge the suspect because the killers are known. Let them be taken to court and face the law. The family wants justice.”Ondieki said
