A MAN in his 30s will be produced at the Nasinu Magistrates Court today charged with allegedly murdering his wife.

Police said they had received an initial report that the man’s wife had burnt herself at their Kalabu home in Nasinu on January 10 while attempting to fill a kerosene stove with premix.

The woman later died at the CWM hospital this week.

Police said investigators managed to gather information placing doubt on the earlier report and alleged that the accused had burnt the victim.

He has been charged with one count of murder.
