It has been more than a week since the horrific murder of 5-year-old Shane Benjamin and 2-year-old Ethan Benjamin, allegedly stabbed by their own biological father after an argument with the boys’ mother.
Dave Benjamin Gau, the suspect in the double murder of his sons, remains in police custody as criminal investigations continue.
This is day 9 and the suspect is still awaiting charges to be laid.
NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Superintendent Gideon Ikumu said the suspect is still in police custody due to the severity of the crime committed.
Ikumu stated the reason for this being to protect the suspect himself as well as the public due to the sensitivity of the issue as the NCD CID finalize their investigations.
NCD police boss added that the suspect is yet to be charged and a psychological examination of both the suspect and his partner are being sought out by the NCD CID at this time.
The 2-day mental evaluation was set to begin on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, sources in the family told this newsroom that a post-mortem has also been completed on the two boys with initial findings submitted to police this week.
