Suspected murderer Jaison Muvevi does not want to remain in police custody, opting to be in remand prison instead.
His lawyer, Samson Dzingira, said investigators could always interview him there.
Muvevi was at the Harare Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning, and detectives requested to spend three more days with him.
Investigating Officer Detective Pikisai Chikwazo said they intend to conduct indications at the alleged crime scenes while interviewing the triple homicide suspect.
Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi will rule on the application for further detention later today.
Parson Dziva is prosecuting.
