A man that police believe to be the main suspect in the murder of British rancher Tristan Voorspuy will now remain in custody for fourteen days to enable detectives complete investigations.
Samson Lokayi, 25, was taken to Nanyuki Law Courts where he was paraded before Senior Resident Magistrate Evanson Ngige who ordered that he be detained at the Nanyuki Police station until after fourteen days.
Police had sought the orders to enable them complete their investigations into the murder.
Lokayi was first arraigned in court on Monday but he could not take a plea due to language barrier forcing the magistrate to rescedule the case to yesterday when the prosecution would have got an interpreter.
The accused had told the court that he only understands Pokot.
Through the prosecution the police noted that Lokoyi has no known permanent residence and releasing him on board was not advisable.
They further noted that they needed more time with the suspect as he could lead to arrest of other who are still at large and who are believed to have been part of those who shot Voorspy.
