TV journalist Jacque Maribe and her fiancé Joseph Irungu are set to make applications to be released on bail on Wednesday

TV journalist Jacqueline Maribe and her boyfriend Joseph Irungu alias Jowie will spend another week in prison pending the hearing of their bail application next Wednesday.

Justice James Wakiaga also directed the probation office to file a pre-bail report in court ahead of the hearing.

The report from social workers will inform the judge’s decision when deciding whether to deny them bail.

However, it is the prosecution that has to convince the court that there are compelling reasons to deny them their freedom.

The two are accused of murdering Monica Kimani on September 19 at Lamuria Gardens Apartment, Kilimani.

The court directed that Mr Irungu, who was to undergo surgery on his left arm, be taken to Kenyatta National Hospital.
