Citizen TV anchor Jacque Maribe and her fiance Joseph Irungu alias Jowie have pleaded not guilty to Monica Kimani’s murder.
The two denied the charge before Justice Jessie Lessit on Monday.
The duo said they were aware of the charges leveled against them and were innocent.
The plea taking followed a psychiatric evaluation which found Maribe and Jowie fit to stand trial.
Maribe and Jowie are accused of murdering Monica at an apartment along Dennis Pritt Road.
The slain businesswoman’s body was found deposited in a bathtub, throat slashed and hands tied to the back.
Jowie was arrested on September 25, being four days after the woman’s body was found.
Maribe and her fiance will remain in custody until Wednesday when the case will be mentioned.
They had applied for bail but Lessit said the application will be heard by a different court.
