The prime suspect in the murder case of Agnes Tirop death, Ibrahim Rotich has today (16) pleaded not guilty at the Eldoret High Court where the case was transfered from Iten Law Courts.
Tirop’s body was found on October 13 with stab wounds in the bedroom in Iten.
She was born to a peasant farming; Tirop launched her athletics career less than a decade ago but swiftly ran up a host of second-place finishes in national and international cross country races.
She went on to become one of Kenya’s rising stars — as the 2015 world cross-country champion, a two-time world medallist over 10000m, and came forth over 5000m at the Tokyo Olympics this year.
