A man who allegedly killed 26-year-old woman on their first date was this morning arraigned in court to face murder charges.

According to the charge sheet presented in court by the prosecution it is alleged that he committed the offense at unknown time at Ngong Forest Mutuini Block in Dagoreti South,Nairobi County.

He however did not answer to the charges since he did not have a lawyer to represent him.

The plea was deferred to 7th of September.

It is alleged that the deceased was staying with her younger brother in Ngara, Nairobi, was reportedly meeting her boyfriend for the first time and had promised to be back before the end of the day.

According to one of the local daily, the body of an unknown woman had been found there and  taken to City Mortuary.

The newspaper further said confession of the suspect and the report in the police occurrence book at Mutuini Police Post prompted the detectives to call the family.

The police then accompanied Japheth to City Mortuary where he positively identified the body.

Lydia’s father Zachariah Mogeni Onono and mother Irene were called to Nairobi on Sunday and they also helped to identify the body yesterday. A postmortem report indicated Lydia died from strangulation.

Richard Nyakina, the suspect, told investigators that he had known Lydia for over a year and he killed her for allegedly cheating on him.

He told the detectives that on the fateful day, Lydia received a call from another man who was referring to her as ‘sweetie’ and upon demanding to know who the caller was, an argument ensued.

He then hit her on the head and later used her bra, blouse and shoe laces to strangle her to death.
