A man charged for one count of an act with intent to cause grievous harm to his wife will be sentenced by the High Court in Suva today.

The accused appeared before judge Justice Daniel Goundar on Wednesday, where he maintained a guilty plea.

The accused was remanded into custody.

The state counsel Lavenia Bogi­tini had earlier informed the court that the complainant had received multiple bruises on the left side of her body and was admitted in the hospital for three days.

The alleged incident had occurred in Lakeba in June, 2018.

The defence counsel Litiana Ratidara sought time from the court to file a written mitigation for the accused.

The matter was adjourned for sen­tencing which takes place today.

A production order was issued for the accused to be present in court.
