"I think his intention was not to commit suicide..."

The woman having an affair with Olympic marathon champion Samuel Wanjiru and in the room with him when he fell to his death off a balcony said Friday he did not intend to commit suicide.

Jane Nduta said Wanjiru may have jumped or fallen to his death Sunday night while trying to get the key for his bedroom door from his wife, who locked Nduta and Wanjiru in the room when she found them.

Nduta said the runner had consumed several beers in bars before they went back to his home.

"I think his intention was not to commit suicide," said Nduta, who added she didn't see Wanjiru fall off the balcony.
