A man has been charged with the murder of a New Zealand photojournalist in Kenya two years ago.

Trent Keegan's body was found with head injuries in a ditch near Kenya's capital, Nairobi, in June 2008.

His father, Mike Keegan, says family members are happy to hear someone has been charged over the death.

Mr Keegan says the accused man is already serving time for a murder.

He says hopefully the trial, starting next month, will provide answers about why his son was killed.
