An 18 year old man of Sigatoka who is alleged to have murdered a 57 year old man in Lautoka appeared in court today.
Avniel Dilesh Mani of Lomawai is currently charged with 1 count of murder, 3 counts of theft, 1 count of burglary and 1 count of driving a motor vehicle without a proper driving licence.
The alleged incident happened last week Friday and Saturday.
Mani’s lawyer had applied for bail before the Lautoka Magistrates Court stating that his client is willing to abide by strict conditions.
Police Prosecutor Paul Taito however objected, stating that the alleged offences Mani is charged with are serious offence.
Mani has been further remanded and will appear on the 26th of this month at the Lautoka High Court where his case has been transferred.
