Rally driver Maxine Wahome fit to face murder charges in court
Rally driver Maxine Wahome is set to appear in court on Wednesday to answer to murder charges following the death of her boyfriend, Asad Khan.
This comes after a mental exam conducted on Tuesday at Mathari Mental Hospital found her fit to stand trial. The Assistant Director of DPP Gikui Gichuhi requested the mental assessment before Maxine is charged with the murder.
Justice Lilian Mutende allowed the request after informing Maxine of the charges that had been filed against her by the Director of Public Prosecution.
Initially, detectives intended to charge Maxine with causing grievous bodily harm, but the charge was changed after Khan died in the hospital from his injuries inflicted during a scuffle.
Khan died in December after a domestic squabble. The fight allegedly led to him sustaining injuries and losing a lot of blood which is thought to have caused his death.
While Maxine’s family maintains that she is innocent, the prosecution seems to have sufficient evidence to charge her with the murder of her boyfriend.
Through her lawyer Phillip Murgor, the Wahome family claimed that their daughter was not guilty of the charges filed against her.
Addressing the media at Kilimani Police Station, where she is being detained, Murgor expressed his confusion about the murder charge. Murgor said he has gone through all the evidence and facts, and he does not know why the murder charge was preferred against his client.
The rally driver will take a plea tomorrow for the death of her late boyfriend.
