The High Court in Suva has fixed a trial date for the woman charged with the murder of her newborn baby.

The trail will be from June 12 to June 23, 2017.

Sangeeta Devi is charged with the murder of her 2.5 kilogram child.

The State lawyer asked for a further seven days to finalise the admitted facts and informed the court that they have 10 witnesses for the trial.

Defence lawyer Priya Lal told the court that the trial will take two weeks and the prosecution has two doctors as witnesses while the defence has one doctor as a witness.

The court has been adjourned to August 11 for agreed facts.

Devi’s bail has further been extended.
