THE 19-year-old facing multiple criminal charges in the stabbing of a Lautoka police officer earlier this week appeared in the Lautoka Magistrates Court a while ago.

Vilimone Lalaobouma was escorted into the courtroom under heavy police guard.

He appeared before Magistrate Nayani Kasturirathne charged with one count of murder, one count of robbery, one count of theft and two counts of serious assault.

State lawyer Ratu Josaia Niudamu objected to bail due to public interest.

The accused has been remanded in custody awaiting his next mention date on November 7 at the High Court in Lautoka.
