Dr. Peter Muriuki, who conducted the autopsy for Mwatha's family, said she died of excessive bleeding both internally and externally. He said it was a result of a medical intervention removing the fetus.
Police asked a court Thursday to hold six people for 14 days to investigate Mwatha's death. They include the owner of the clinic where she died. Abortion is illegal in Kenya unless it's an emergency to save the mother.
