Turunga urged Shitubi to release his client as the police carry out further investigations.

Magistrate Shitubi consented to defense lawyer’s request without the suspect taking any plea to the charge preferred by prosecution on him.

Without fixing a date of hearing of the case, Shitubi only said the case will be heard as soon as the police complete investigations.

Earlier, the suspect walked to the court on his own and after the direction from the magistrate, he walked away the way he came in.

The incident that caused the death of the police officer occurred on September 15 in Kitengela town where the police claim the accused mistakenly fired a bullet from his pistol that went through the head of fellow officer.
