Judge Kuto will deliver the ruling in an hour’s time

Prosecutor Allan Mogere told the court that preliminary investigations established that Omwenga, 28, was killed in his bedroom with Obure’s ceska pistol.

Obure is a licensed firearm holder while Bodo is not.

Police reports also show that the deceased was with brother Wycliffe Omwenga, 28, Bodo and two other men and a Tanzanian woman.

Wycliffe was the first to respond after he heard the sound of the gunfire and when he rushed to the bedroom he found his brother lying on his back with blood oozing from his chest.
