A fourty-seven-year-old man of Batiniwai Settlement in Caubati has been charged with one count of murder.
Epeli Talakubu appeared in the Nasinu Magistrates Court this morning.
It is alleged he murdered fourty-two-year-old Masi Kalaro who lives in the same settlement.
The alleged offence occurred last weekend during a drinking party when the accused and the victim had a heated argument.
Prosecution officers objected to bail due to the safety of the accused.
Prosecutor, Joseph Dickson, says tension remains high in the Batiniwai Settlement after the incident.
The case has been transferred to the Suva High Court and will be recalled next Friday.
