Detective corporal Godwins Ogola of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said Korir’s postmortem report indicated he was starving and had some wounds on his chest.

Further investigations the wife revealed that he had transferred her money without her consent.

The DCI now wants details of the couple’s bank and M-Pesa accounts.

“The wife to the deceased alleges that the deceased had transferred Sh 10,000 from her account through mobile banking against her wish and she later learnt that the deceased travelled to Kinoo to visit his brother,” Ogola stated.

Ogola was making an application at the Makadara Law Courts to be granted orders compelling Bank of Africa, Stanbic Bank and Safaricom Limited to provide him details of the couple’s accounts necessary in the investigations. Senior Resident Magistrate Lewis Gatheru approved of the orders.

Korir had an account with Bank of Africa while his wife with Stanbic Bank.

Operations managers of the two banks are required to furnish Ogola with Korir and his wife’s account opening documents and certified bank statements from December 1, 2019, and April 30, 2020.

The banks are required to also provide the DCI with M-banking statements along with the documents.

Safaricom is required to provide Korir’s three mobile phone numbers M-Pesa accounts details and transactions during the same period.

Korir was found burnt beyond recognition inside his parked car under unclear circumstances, which the DCI is investigating.

Investigators said his sitting position on the driver’s seat showed he never made an attempt to rescue himself while flames engulfed and consumed his body.

His postmortem report showed he died inside the car because he inhaled a lot of soot which chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor said was an indication he took too long before he died.

Oduor said Korir’s intestines were empty, an indication he had not eaten for like three days before the incident.
