State Prosecutor Munanura Arinaitwe Aganyira, informed Masindi Chief Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning that investigations into the matter are still ongoing and asked the court for more time to complete the process. 

Initially, the suspects were supposed to be remanded to Masindi Prison but they opted for Hoima Prison citing security reasons. This is the fourth time the suspects have appeared in court.

Police and other security agencies including the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence operatives then embarked on the hunt for the suspected killers leading to the arrest of Cherotich from Masindi while Namureng and Kipsang were arrested from Bukwo district. 

Masindi Chief Magistrate Kosia Kasibayo further remanded them until March 21, 2024, when they will reappear in court.
