MURDER suspect Priya Darshani made her first appearance at the High Court in Lautoka yesterday.

The 22-year-old appeared before Justice Sudharshana De Sliva charged with two counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder.

The charges follow the brutal attack on a family which led to the deaths of 33-year-old Sisi Taofa Patolo and seven-month-old Sarah Patolo near Viseisei Village on December 18, 2013.

The accused waived her right to counsel and informed the court she would appear in person during the case.

Meanwhile, the Director of Public Prosecutors Office has been given until February 17 to submit all disclosures to the court.

The accused remains in custody until her next appearance.
