Vasco Murerwa Larama
1.Accused is charged with the offence of murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the Penal Code. The particulars of the charge are that onvOctober 15, 2020 at Marega village, Marega location in Tigania Central sub-county within Meru county murdered Mary Mwari
2.Accused person denied committing the offence and prosecution called a total of 5 witnesses in support of its case. At this stage, the court is not required to decide finally whether the evidence is worthy of credit or whether, if believed, it is weighty enough to prove the case conclusively, -that final determination can only properly be made when the case for the defence has been heard.
3.Having considered the evidence tendered by the prosecution witnesses, I am persuaded that a prima facie case has been established that warrants this court to call upon the accused persons to defend himself.
4.Accordingly, accused will proceed as provided under section 306 (2) of the Criminal Procedure Code.
