The prime suspect in the macabre murder of a family of five in Kiambu says he was influenced by BBC drama Killing Eve.
Killing Eve is a British comedy-drama spy thriller television series.
Lawrence Simon Warunge told police he went online to search how he can execute his mission the same way the main character in the
movie, psychopathic assassin Villanelle does without a trace.
“He says he searched the whole script online and he intended to conceal his tracks by even killing the remaining sisters,” said an investigator aware of the probe.

Lawrence, 23, an IT student at a local university, and his girlfriend Sarah Muthoni, are expected in court today where police expect to ask for more time to hold him as they complete their probe into the murder.
Police are puzzled how he managed to kill the five without resistance.
Plans are to conduct an autopsy on the bodies Monday to establish how the victims died.
He was arrested on Friday night in Kabete after he went to seek refuge there while on the run.
Lawrence is the son of the couple he killed in Karura, Kiambu county, last Tuesday.
Police said they arrested Lawrence after he went missing since Tuesday when his parents, two brothers, and a worker were brutally murdered at their home in Kiambaa constituency, Kiambu county.
After his arrest, he confessed to the incident and led police to a residence in Mai Mahiu area on Saturday where they recovered the killer
weapon – a kitchen knife – piece of
clothes, shoes, and a piece of ppaper. He had thrown the exhibits to a pit latrine.
Police dug the wall of the latrine and used ropes to recover the exhibits from the 20-feet deep pit.
He also took police to an open field in the same area where he said he burnt some of the evidence.

Lawrence told police he first killed the mason in his house, which is few metres away from the
main house, by slitting his throat.
He then made his way into the house through the rear door, where he found his mother Annie,
and hacked her to death before slitting her throat.
The commotion in the kitchen drew the attention of the second victim, his cousin Maxwell Njenga, 13, who was confronted along the corridor and cut in the head and throat.
He said he killed Maxwell even as he asked for mercy from him while kneeling.
His blood brother Christian Njenga, who detectives say was killed and his throat slit on his bed, had just turned 13 on December 26,
