A woman, Charity Upev and her Son, Tertsea, have been remanded in prison custody for killing their house maid, Fanen.

Magistrate Roseline Iyorshe of Makurdi magistrate’s court in Benue State who remanded the accused on Tuesday refused to take their plea.

The accused were charged for criminal conspiracy and culpable homicide by the police and the case adjourned till February 8 for further mention and transfered the case file.

Okeomanews gathered that the victim was an in-law of the accused.

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Inspector Jonah Uletu, told the court that on January 24, the Divisional Police Officer of ‘E’ Division Police Station, Makurdi, received information that Charity and her son beat up Fanen, her in-law living with her.

The prosecutor said Charity claimed that her in-law stole meat from her pot of soup.

The police said Fanen became unconscious as a result of the beating and was rushed to a hospital, but died while receiving treatment.

The offence, the prosecutor said, contravened sections 97 and 222 of the Penal Code Laws of Benue, 2004.
