A MAN alleged to have killed his wife and mother-in-law was remanded in custody by the Suva Magistrates Court.

Sitiveni Qio Vasuturaga, 41, made his first court appearance yesterday after being arrested in Kadavu last week.

He is charged with two counts of murder and one of act with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

Unrepresented, Mr Vasuturaga opted to remain silent in court only nodding to indicate that he understood court proceedings.

Police prosecutor Caroline Fisher told the court the three charges against Mr Vasuturaga were indictable and made an application to transfer the matter to the High Court.

Mr Vasuturaga was told to make his bail application in the High Court and he was remanded.

The case will be called in the High Court on August 29.

The alleged incident took place at Namuana Village in Kadavu on Sunday August 10.

The accused allegedly knifed his 37-year-old wife and her 60-year-old mother following a family dispute.
