The state witness in the murder trial of Kiala Henri Lusaka has told the Suva High Court that there were two coins on the dead wife’s eyes and Lusaka was lying beside her.
Lusaka allegedly murdered his wife on 23rd July, 2019 in Suva.
The trial was abandoned midway in April 2021 due to COVID-19 and has started fresh now.
Charles O'Hanlon, who was the UN Regional Security Advisor says during a check up on the family, Lusaka’s daughter had given him the keys into the house.
He says they had heard muffled, gargled sound coming from the bedroom and when Lusaka did not open the door, police shoulder charged into the room and pushed into the room.
He says Lusaka was lying beside his dead wife where his right hand was under her head and supporting it while his left arm was on her stomach.
The trial continues.
