A Kitale court on Thursday charged a middle-aged man with defiling his 16-year-old daughter and impregnating her.
Appearing before Senior Resident Magistrate Moureen Kesse, the man was charged with sexually abusing his daughter on diverse dates between February 1 and March 2019 in Chepchoina, Trans Nzoia County.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges. The prosecution requested the court to deny the suspect bond since might interfere with the witnesses. He is said to have been threatening witnesses.
The accused was taken to Kitale Farm prison.
The case will be mentioned on August 8, 2019 before being heard on September 9, 2019.
