The accused is alleged to have caused the death of a 49-year-old farmer from Korotari, Labasa earlier this month.

It is believed that the suspect was consuming alcohol with the deceased along with a few friends at the Korotari River before the incident happened.

Last week, two men and a woman were produced in the Labasa Magistrates’ Court charged with their alleged involvement in the incident.
