When corporal Caroline was first accused of a police constable John Ogweno of Kasarani police lines in Nakuru, many thought tris was just one of the many cases of love gone sour incidences that lead to murder.

The duo would stay in the room until midnight when Kangongo left, leaving the man’s lifeless body on the bed.
