Thirty-four-year old Frindrich Haingura from Causa, who appeared in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court yesterday for the alleged murder of Theresia Naitha Hausona, 28, was denied bail.
Haingura was denied bail due to the seriousness of the charge against him.
He was arrested by the Kavango East Police on Friday in the wake of an incident in which he allegedly severely assaulted Hausona on Wednesday who later died on Friday morning from the injuries she sustained in the beating at Causa village, south of Ndonga village.
Haingura appeared before Rundu magistrate Barry Mufana, while public prosecutor G.N. Nghinongelwa prosecuted.
The case was remanded to April 18 and Haingura opted to apply for legal aid after the magistrate explained his rights to legal representation.
