By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, February 9 (LINA) - The Kakata Magisterial Court has charged a 34-year-old man with the crime of murder.

Defendant Michael Worlawu was charged for allegedly killing an 11-year-old boy, Kehkeh Kerkulah, on December 30, 2015 near a swamp in Klemah Town, Konoquelleh Clan in Cinta Township, Margibi County.

The body of little Kehkeh was discovered on January 4, 2016 after he went missing from the town.

A writ of arrest issued by the court said defendant Worlawue being highly criminal-minded with the intent to commit a crime against the state, purposely and knowingly caused the death of young Kerkulah.

The writ said victim Kerkulah was traveling on the highway between Kelemah Tonnon Town and Kollie Bei Town in Margibi County when the defendant pushed the victim into the water, causing his death.

After allegedly killing Kerkulah, the suspect escaped the crime scene to an unknown destination before he was later arrested.

Meanwhile, accused Worlawue has been remanded at the Kakata Central Prison pending indictment before the 13th Judicial Circuit Court.
