Four police officers and an informant accused of killing human rights lawyer Willie Kimani will remain in police custody.
On Thursday morning, Fredrick Leliman, Stephen Cheburet Morogeo, Sylvia Wanjiku Wanjohi and Leonard Maina Mwangi were denied bail/bond terms.
Justice Jessy Lessit said nothing has changed since the first time they applied to be released.
This was their second bid for bail/bond at the Milimani Law Courts.
The court previously ruled that confession and evidence presented to investigators from the police informant, who is also the 5th accused, will be used against them in the case.
Peter Ngugi Kamau, the fifth accused person, is reported to have confessed to investigators how the deceased advocate and two others were kidnapped, brutally murdered and their bodies dumped into a river.
