17 year old girl who killed her own child deemed unfit for trial.
A 17 year old girl who killed her own child by strangling to death, will not stand before a judge because of her mental status.
According to a mental report that was conducted, by a psychiatrist at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital Eldoret, stated that the girl was unfit to be charged.
Preliminary reports indicated that the girl, killed her child in June 2022 without giving any apparent reasons.
The lawyer stated,”Your honour, the student is not fit to stand trial for the murder case, going by the findings of the mental assessment report from a psychiatrist which is in our possession.”
The judge further indicated that the learner will remain in custody until further medical examinations are done on her.
The judge said,” I was ready and willing to release this learner on bond so that she can go home. But since none of her parents or guardians has come to court, I order that she be taken back to Eldoret GK prison.”
