Alleged Ex-wife Stabber Fronts Court

A father of two, who allegedly stabbed his former wife at Howell Road, Suva, last Friday, appeared in the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

Etonia Vosa, 29, is charged with one count of attempted murder. He appeared before Magistrate Shageeth Somaratne.

Magistrate Somaratne said because of the seriousness of the offence and that it involved domestic violence, Vosa would be remanded in custody.

The accused informed the court he wanted to seek Legal Aid Commission assistance.

Magistrate Somaratne said the accused would be able to apply for legal aid assistance while in remand.

The 28-year-old victim who was allegedly stabbed in the stomach, neck and head by the accused last Friday is still admitted in the Colonial War Memorial Hospital.

The case would be called again in the Suva Magistrates Court on January 19.
