.....Mwaura’s laptop and the knife that was used in her killing.
Police officers attached to Juja police station on Friday morning arrested Mwaura’s 24-year-old brother Charles, in connection with the murder.
Mwaura was last seen on Wednesday, January 25, at 12 noon at her parents’ house in Kahawa Sukari.
Her disappearance was reported at Githurai Kimbo police station on January 29.
Last week, Central region police chief Larry Kiyeng said police were searching for the killers, but were yet to establish the motive.
Police had launched a manhunt for Charles after he fled from a house where some remains were discovered.
“We asked him to bring a torch to help us search but he took off. We want to know why and we suspect he may be involved,” a detective familiar with the investigations said.
Detectives have learnt that Mwaura, a fourth year engineering student, had a verbal altercation with Charles over food.
Charles, 24, a Bachelor of Commerce graduate, was allegedly infuriated when Mwaura insulted him for eating her crisps.
Charles is currently admitted at a Nairobi hospital where he is receiving treatment after attempting to commit suicide by stabbing himself severally in the stomach.
Ruiru police boss Isaac Thuranira revealed that Charles confessed to the gory killing.
