A MAN charged with a count of murder, one of attempted murder and another of act with intent to cause grievous harm has been remanded to appear in the High Court in Suva.

Joeli Masidola, who was taken into custody last Friday, was charged and brought to the Nasinu Magistrates Court yesterday.

He is alleged to have stabbed and killed Jone Nabaisila and injured two women who are still admitted in the hospital.

The prosecution told the court the charge of murder was indictable and made an application to transfer the case to the High Court.

The application was granted.

Mr Masidola was told bail application would also have to be made in the High Court.

The case will be called on March 10.
