The courts in Mavoko have allowed the detention Resident Magistrate Maisy Omungala Chesang for nine days to allow police to conclude investigations .
Chesang was arrested on Sunday night after it was established that she allegedly paid police officers Sh181,000 to kill her husband, Robert Chesang.
Robert Chesang, who was an advocate of the High Court, had marital differences with his wife, Pauline Maisy Omungala Chesang.
Court records indicate Chesang had filed a civil case against his wife under the provisions of The Protection Against Domestic Violence Act and the Persons Deprived of Liberty Act.The matter is documented in Miscellaneous Civil Application No. 342 of 2018 with Chesang being the applicant while Maisy was listed as the first respondent.
Magistrates had recused themselves from the case for personal reasons and the case was transferred to Justice George Odunga.
“That union seems to be rocked by marital turbulence. Allegations of domestic violence have been made against the 1st respondent by the applicant. It is the said allegations which provoked these proceedings,” Justice Odunga had said.
Chesang was shot seven times at their home in Machakos on 17th February.
