Sheila Wanjiku Kibinge, known also as Sheila Kairu, was convicted in July of the murder of Leonard Kibinge Kiruri in Gitaru village on April 14, 2014, and later sentenced to death by hanging, according to the Kenyan newspaper Daily Nation.
Wanjiku Kibinge, who currently holds certificates for elementary education, physical science and as a supervisor in New Jersey, told the state Board of Examiners she had been charged with murder but pleaded not guilty.
Wanjiku Kibinge, who has a residence in Maplewood, told the teachers’ licensing board she’d been traveling at night with her husband when they were carjacked and he was murdered. The board voted to suspend her teaching licenses in July pending the outcome of the charges against her, which was formally adopted on Sept. 15.
