Lucy Wanjiru Wangui,43, and Mary Ng’endo Thuita,37, were admitted at the hospital for psychiatric examination before the start of their trial at the Milimani law courts.

A search was done at the facility after they went missing only for their bodies to be found hanging from a metal bar.

According to Nairobi News, the bodies have since been moved to the city mortuary.
