Kenyan man's body flown home

8:10 pm on 26 September 2009

The body of slain Kenyan man Stephen Maina has been flown back to his homeland, two weeks after he died in a Christchurch house.

Mr Maina's friend Lydiah Munene, who was living in the house with her two sons, was found seriously injured alongside him. She has been in an induced coma in Christchurch Hospital ever since, though by Thursday her condition had improved enough to allow her removal to a general ward.

Ms Munene's estranged husband Samuel Njuguna, who flew to Kenya less than 48 hours after the police say an attack on Mr Maina and Ms Munene occurred, is being sought in relation to the incident.
