A Sigatoka man facing murder charges and who missed a High Court appearance last Thursday allegedly took his own life on Wednesday.

Anand Kumar, 54, was charged with murder in July, last year for allegedly killing his wife Sunita Devi in Kabisi.

He was also charged for attacking his 14-year-old step-daughter.

He was staying in Tore Settlement, Lautoka at the house of a surety for his bail on July 21.

When he failed to appear in court last week, he was reported missing to police on the same day. The incident has been confirmed by police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro.
