“Two blood stained knives believed to have been the murder weapons were recovered from the scene of crime.
“As detectives burn the midnight oil to arrest the female suspect, members of the public are requested to volunteer any information that may lead to his immediate arrest,” DCI requested.
The body of the Doctor who also worked as Finance Director, was found on Friday, September 15, with multiple stabbing wounds.

The postmortem which was conducted at the Lee Funeral Home on Saturday revealed some vital organs were raptured by the stabs in the attack.
“We calculated and found he had 25 stab wounds. This caused both external and internal bleeding,” said chief government pathologist Dr Johansen Oduor.
He stated there were no defence injuries meaning the man lay as he was being stabbed.
