A 27-year-old woman, Glory Uchenna, has been remanded in prison custody by a Senior Magistrates’ Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, for allegedly stabbing her neighbour to death, according to a report by TheNation.
It was gathered that Uchenna, a housewife and mother of one, allegedly stabbed Imoh Cletus, her neighbour, in the back with a kitchen knife.
A document obtained from the court alleged that the accused stabbed her victim over alleged trespass.
The document reads: “The only problem we had was that anytime she wanted to bath, she must look into our room. I have warned her several times, but she continued doing so.”
She allegedly committed the offence on February 7, about 3:30pm, at Elikpokwudu, Rukpokwu in Obio/Akpor Local Government.
The one-count charge of murder was not read to her; hence she did not take any plea.
She was not represented by any lawyer.
Magistrate Gomba Osaro ordered that she be remanded in prison custody.
She also ordered that her case file be duplicated and sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal advice.
Osaro adjourned till March 28 for DPP’s advice.
