JANE MUTHONI, the widow of Kiiru Boys High School principal Solomon Mwangi, found guilty of murdering the headteacher; She will be sentenced on May 18.
The High Court in Nakuru has found Jane Muthoni, the widow of Kiru Boys’ High School Principal Solomon Mwangi, guilty of his murder.
Also convicted is Muthoni’s co-accused, Isaac Ng’ang’a, alias Gikuyu.
During the trial, Muthoni who has been in remand for nearly five years following the murder, defended herself against the charge of killing Mbuthi and said it was his fellow who orchestrated her husband’s death after he refused to play into their game over transfers.
Muthoni claimed that the cartel had demanded Sh1 million from them to facilitate their transfer to schools of their choice.
According to the prosecution, Ms Muthoni hired four people to eliminate her husband after she suspected him of having extra- marital affairs.
One suspect, Joseph Kariuki, was sentenced to seven years in prison for manslaughter after he confessed to taking part in the murder.
The fourth suspect, Nelson Njiru, is still at large and efforts to trace him have been fruitless.
