Lawyer Hari Gakinya has been charged with the murder of Belgian woman Dysseleer Mireille Lesoipa, even though he did not take plea for a third time.
The Nakuru-based lawyer who is co-accused with his Lucy Waithera is suspected to have conducted the heinous act between December 11, 2018 and July 5, 2019 at an unknown place within Kenya.
The Belgian was married to a Samburu dancer but separated in 2003.
Ms Lesoipa went missing from her home in Milimani, Nakuru County in mid-2019 with police investigations leading to the arrest of her close friend Waithera.
According to the detectives, Waithera hired the services of Gakiya to file a succession case before the High Court in Nakuru.
In the case, Gakinya claimed Ms Lesoipa had died from HIV/AIDS leaving behind a will in which she had named him the executor of her property worth over KES 100 million before detectives from the Homicide Investigations Unit of the DCI established that the documents used to file the court case were fake.
