Eldoret High Court judge Reuben Nyakundi, in a ruling on Monday said that the prosecution presented enough evidence in court to prove that the two were involved in the murder of Matenje who was working as a newspaper vendor. 

Nyakundi ordered the two to be detained in Eldoret prison until June 3, 2024 when the court will give a sentence. 

In the 2018 incident, Muhinda hacked her husband, mutilated his body and stashed it inside a sack. 

Being in communication with Amatuka, Muhinda hired his boda boda to help her transport the mutilated body parts. 

Suspicious member of the public accosted them, when Amatuka escaped, leaving Muhinda behind.
