A second suspect linked to the murder of Nakuru GK Prison warder Caroline Jepchirchir Chesire was on Monday handed over to authorities after spending days on the run.
Reports indicate Raymond Kiplimo was handed over to authorities by his family.
Nakuru DCIO Mr David Wangai confirmed that the suspect was presented at Nakuru Main Prison at around 5pm.
Shortly after, Kiplimo was handed over to detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), who have been trailing him soon after the murder was reported on April 3.
He is set to be arraigned after interrogations.
Kiplimo and his colleague Joseph Kairu are said to be the last persons seen with the deceased on the day she went missing.
On April 10, Kairu was arraigned in a Nakuru court where the court ordered he be detained for 14 days as investigations into the killing are conducted.
Last week on Wednesday, the body of Jepchirchir was found in a thicket at Githiolo village in Subukia sub-county, after she went missing.
The body had injuries on the head and chest. It was moved to a mortuary in Nyahururu.
A postmortem examination revealed that she was strangled to death.
According to an autopsy report by Government pathologist Titus Ngulungu, the body of the deceased had blood clots on the neck, nose, tongue and on both hands.
The examination was carried out at the Nakuru War Memorial Hospital mortuary.
Chepchirchir uncle noted: “The doctor informed us after the postmortem that Caroline was strangled. The body had blood clots on the neck, tongue, nose and hands.”
