A youth and a juvenile charged with one count of murder and theft have had their matter  adjourned to February 29, 2015 for mention.

The ruling was made yesterday by High Court Justice Aruna Aluthge in Lautoka.

The first accused, Ratabuli Nacegutuilagi, 19, was represented by Legal Aid Commission lawyer Roneel Kumar while the second accused, the juvenile, 16, was represented by lawyer Kevueli Tunidau.

Mr Tunidau said information and disclosures had not yet been filed by the State and that he had no objection to providing the State with more time to do so.

Mr Kumar also did not object. The State prosecutor said he was waiting for the post mortem examination result and sought time to file information. The two accused were allegedly involved in the death of mechanic Reginald Singh, 29, on November 6.

Mr Singh was found dead in a sugarcane field in Masimasi, Sabeto, Nadi, a few metres from his home.

The two accused were allegedly found with Mr Singh’s vehicle in Nadroga and were taken into custody.
