The 22-year-old university IT student who confessed to killing four of his family members in Kiambu has told police he was inspired by Villanelle character in the Killing Eve TV series.

The university IT student was Friday arrested as a prime suspect into the incident after a three-day manhunt.

Police said they arrested the son identified as Lawrence Simon Warunge after he went missing since Tuesday when his parents, two brothers and a worker were brutally murdered at their home in Kiambaa Constituency, Kiambu county.

After he was arrested, he later confessed to the incident and led police to a residence in Mai Mahiu area on Saturday where they recovered the killer weapon- a kitchen knife-, clothes, shoes and a piece of paper.

He had thrown the exhibits to a pit latrine. Police dug the wall of the latrine and used ropes to recover the exhibits from the 20-feet deep pit.

He also took police to an open field in the same area where he said he burnt some of the evidence.

Lawrence claims he killed the five alone but the police believe he must have committed the heinous act with the help of some people.
