POLICE are yet to charge the 21-year-old suspect alleged to have murdered a 34-year-old farmer of Uma Village on Rabi Island at the weekend.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro yesterday said the suspect was still in custody at the Savusavu Police Station.

"At the moment, we are also waiting for the post-mortem examination to be carried out," she confirmed.

"Once we have the post-mortem (examination) results, we will then charge the suspect. Investigations into the matter continue."

It was earlier reported the two allegedly fought while drinking with three other men during a party on Saturday night.

Police earlier said a 12-year-old girl discovered the body of the deceased at the village centre the next morning.

The victim was pronounced dead while awaiting emergency evacuation at the Rabi Health Centre.
