Beryl Ouma, the lady who succumbed last Thursday following an alleged domestic abuse, was strangled to death in her sleep, autopsy report has revealed.
The postmortem, which was carried out by three pathologists, revealed that the deceased also suffered severe injuries as a result of being hit by a metallic object at least six times.
However, the pathologists noted that the injuries were not the cause of her death.
Addressing the interested parties which included human rights activists, Evans Ondieki, the lawyers representing doctors and the family, affirmed that all the pathologists agreed in the autopsy report.
The three pathologists included: Joseph Ndung’u who represented Beryl’s family, Charles Muturi representing the suspect’s family and State pathologist Peter Ndegwa.
“The doctors said this could not be an accident or treated as self-strangulation, and that it cannot be self-inflicted,” Ondieki affirmed.
Additionally, he revealed that Beryl, who was expectant at the time of her death, was killed and it could not have been done by only one person.
He explained: “We don’t want to speculate, what we want is for the police to charge the suspects because the killers are known.
“Let them be taken to court and face the law. The family wants justice,” he stated.
Ms Ouma died after a fight ensued between her and her husband, Laiko Osuri, at their home in Kahawa Sukari.
She was later rushed to Neema Hospital, where she was confirmed dead.
