Viria Suspect Charged  With Murder

The 35-year-old suspect alleged to have murdered a 14-year-old girl and tried to injure himself in Viria in Naitasiri has been charged with one count of murder.

Mukesh Lal who was found with the body of the victim in an abandoned house in Viria last month appeared in the Nausori Magistrates Court yesterday.

The matter has been adjourned to October 24 and will be heard in the High Court in Suva.

The state objected to bail and the accused has been remanded in custody.

The victim was reported missing from her home on September 25 and checks made at all likely places proved futile.

Mr Lal who is a resident of Wainiika Settlement in Viria was also reported missing from home on September 24.

The two were last seen occupying a vacant house and when Police arrived at the scene they discovered the victim dead.

The accused was alleged to have injured himself and was rushed to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital where he was admitted before appearing in court.
