Peter Mugure is in critical condition after police said Friday he tried to kill himself in a holding cell.
While doing a routine check, an officer noticed the man was unresponsive. Several officers responded and provided first aid, then took him to a hospital, according to police.
Jacob Musau is leading the investigation to find out the reason behind.
Late last month, Major Peter Mugure was arraigned in court where police asked more time to hold him pending conclusion of investigations. Bodies believed to be of Major Mugure’s estranged wife Joyce Syombua (31) and children; Shanice Maua (10) and Prince Michael (5), were on discovered at Makaburini in Thingithu area, approximately 9-minutes away from the Laikipia Air Base, with the children stacked on top of their mother. Detectives from the Serious Crimes Unit of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have since taken over investigations into the grisly murder.
