Police in Nairobi’s Kilimani area are investigating a case where a 15-year-old girl succumbed to injuries after being beaten by her father, mother and brother.

Coptic hospital’s management through a clinical officer told detectives that on May 20 at around 9 pm, the hospital received a 15-year-old patient, who has been a student at Kiteta Girls Secondary in Mbooni, Makueni County.

She was accompanied by her father, Frankline Ntwiga Marangu for a medical check-up, since she had allegedly run away from home and failed to report to school.

She was examined and discharged, where the father took her back home at Jamhuri showground quarters.

However, in the wee hours of Friday, the deceased was rushed to the same hospital after she allegedly collapsed at home following a serious beating from her father, mother and the girl’s elder brother who is a student at the Technical University of Kenya where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

The couple and their son are expected in court today where police will make a miscellaneous application to hold them longer as they investigate the matter.

Police who visited the scene recovered one PPR pipe believed to have been used to beat up the deceased and is being held as an exhibit.
