REHOBOTH, 28 JAN (NAMPA) – A 26-year-old woman arrested for the alleged murder of her 24-year-old female friend in Gochas on Friday, made her first appearance at the Aranos Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Johanna Vrey appeared before Magistrate Yvonne McLeod on a charge of murder and the case was postponed to 07 March 2019 to allow the accused to apply for legal aid through the Ministry of Justice’s legal aid department and for further police investigations.
The accused was denied bail as the case is still in its infant stage and will not serve in the public interest, if granted.
Public Prosecutor Waomba Murangi represented the State in the matter.
It is alleged that Vrey stabbed the deceased, Johanna Fredericks, with a knife on the neck and the victim died instantly.
Both women were reportedly intoxicated and were arguing, but it is not yet known to the police what led to the argument.
