A prime suspect in the murder of a police officer attached to Parliament, Hellen Kwamboka has been arrested and is expected in court today.
Police revealed Erick Onyono, 38 will today take plea over the murder. This was after he was arrested in Suam area, Mt Elgon with an intention to flee to Uganda.
Police traced him to the place after reports indicated he had been in contact with his relative who was helping him flee.
Preliminary investigations have since placed Onyono at the scene of crime on the day the body of Kwamboka was discovered.
Onyono later discarded a mobile phone he was using then and bought a new one which he kept using for days before he was arrested.
He was brought to Nairobi at the weekend ahead of his arraignment.
Onyono was boyfriend to the late police woman and who was seen in her Umoja house on May 23 when she is believed to have been killed.
Kwamboka’s body was found lying on her bed with deep cuts in the forehead. She also seemed to have been strangled.
