The three appearing before judge Jessie Lessit, pleaded not guilty of the accusations raised upon them.

The court further agreed with the prosecutor plea to consolidated the two cases into one and directed the three get remanded at the Industrial Area remand prison until date 12 of this month when the court will hear their bail application.

A post-mortem conducted by government pathologist Dr. Johansen Oduor revealed that Sharon was stabbed eight times and died from excessive bleeding.

Dr. Oduor also confirmed reports from homicide detectives that the unborn baby also had stab wounds.

Sharon is expected to be laid to rest on 19th October in Homabay County.
