She has attached Lee funeral Home as the third respondent alongside Eric Keter’s First wife Rebecca Chebii and her first son Charles Cheruiyot to the matter and has also sought temporary orders to prevent the funeral home from releasing the body until the matter is concluded.
The matter has been certified as urgent and the inter party hearings are set for Friday December 15.
Eric Keter who is the immediate former legislator for Belgut constituency died of a heart attack on December 4.
