A man who allegedly caused the death of his partner early on April 4 this year has been formally charged with murder by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Usaia Kilaiverata, 28, had initially been charged with manslaughter.

Kilaiverata allegedly caused the death of his partner, former journalist Losana McGowan, in Suva after an argument between the couple.

The case was called before Justice Salesi Temo at the High Court in Suva for the first call.

The State lawyer filed information and disclosures on May 1.

No plea was taken in court yesterday because the matter had been adjourned to May 18 for mention.

Kilaiverata has been further remanded in custody.
