Justice Sankale ole Kantai, who was arrested on Friday for associating with murder suspect Sarah Wairimu, is set to be charged as the third person in the killing of Dutch businessman Tob Cohen, police sources told the Nation last evening.
This is after detectives, who have been investigating his probable interference in the murder case facing Mr Cohen’s widow Sarah Wairimu found communication between the two that could be linked to the businessman’s killing months before the tycoon disappeared.
The judge was released Saturday on a police bond after spending Friday night at the Muthaiga Police Station.
He will be presented in court on Tuesday morning, but the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji has to approve the murder charges.
The Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) George Kinoti Saturday evening said that they have enough evidence dating several months before Mr Cohen disappeared that can sustain a murder charge.
