Imprisoned For 30 Years. Former Icaciri Secondary School Principal Jane Muthoni Found Guilty Of The Murder Of Her Husband In 2016.

Former Icaciri Girls’ High School Principal Jane Muthoni has been sentenced to 30 years in jail for the murder of her husband Solomon Mwangi.

Muthoni’s co-accused Isaac Ng’ang’a alias Gikuyu will also serve 30 years in prison for the murder.

The two, are said to have plotted and carried out the cold blood execution of then Kiru Boys Secondary School Principal Simon Mwangi.

High Court judge Joel Ngugi said the prosecution proved its case against the duo beyond any reasonable doubt.

“A stiff custodial sentence against the accused is merited,” he said while delivering the verdict on Thursday, June 3.

Muthoni and Ng’ang’a followed the court proceedings virtually from their respective jails at Nairobi’s Langata Women and Kamiti Maximum prisons.

State Counsel Catherine Mwaniki had argued that the case against the two met the threshold to have them sentenced to death.

Nakuru High Court found the duo guilty of murder April this year.

Mwangi had been reported missing on November 6, 2016. His mutilated body would, eight days later – on November 14, 2016 – be found dumped in a coffee plantation in Juja, Kiambu County.

His widow, Muthoni, and her co-accused, Ng’ang’a, were later arrested in connection with the killing.

The Prosecution submitted that Muthoni, the former principal of Icaciri Secondary School in Kiambu, hired criminals, including Ng’ang’a, to kill Mwangi.

The court heard that Muthoni engineered her husband’s killing after he allegedly began a relationship with another woman, identified in court as MWK or M-Pesa Lady.

The plan was to eliminate Mwangi’s lover and then kill him, court was told.

The case has gone on for five years until Thursday, April 22, 2021, when Muthoni and Ng’ang’a were declared guilty of murder.
