High Court Judge Roselyn Aburili said while the court had powers to condemn him to life in prison, it opted to exercise discretion. The court was told how the suspect, who lived with his grandmother, returned home and demanded food from Jael Akuru. When Akuru told him she did not have any food, Omondi demanded flour so he could cook porridge. When he failed to get food or flour from her, Omondi dragged the elderly woman from her house and assaulted her. His advocate told the court Omondi was a first time offender.
