Alleged murderer, Rozleen Khan is requesting the State to reduce her charge to manslaughter.
35-year-old Khan is alleged to have driven a car into the Rewa River on the 6th of May last year, causing the death of her four-year-old daughter.
Khan faces one count of murder and appeared today in the Suva High Court.
The mother of two has engaged new legal representation through Law Solutions’ Gavin O’Driscoll.
O’Driscoll made an application to the DPP to reduce to charge.
In an earlier sitting, it was revealed that Khan has a history of high depression with medical records at Labasa Hospital.
This prompted the Judge to request for an order to reassess Khan’s mental status, however, this matter is still pending.
Khan had earlier pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.
The matter has been adjourned to February 21st.
