A MAN who allegedly cut his wife’s ears and kicked her with his boots denied attacking the wife in court yesterday.
Kevin Daniel, from Sikasa village in Baiyer, Western Highlands who appeared on police bail of K500, denied the assault on the 15th of this month.
Senior provincial magistrate Betty Jacob adjourned the matter to March 11 for trial.
Magistrate Jacob told Daniel to bring his wife and any other witnesses along with him then.
She told him not to get angry with his wife or do anything to her until they appeared in court.
Magistrate Jacob said the Family Protection Act protected and held the whole family together.
In another case, two accused arrested on the 18th of this month for allegedly stealing K600 from a trade store in Baiyer denied taking the money.
Jeffery Moses and Junior Billy, who worked as storekeepers and appeared in court yesterday from police custody, told the court that they took K60 which was money collected from the sale of water bottles.
Moses told the court that the son of the owner of the trade store, Baki Wai, opened the store and they went in and got the K60.
They denied trying to break open the lock the previous night and gained access into the store as alleged by the owner.
Magistrate Jacob told the accused that they admitted to taking K60 but Wai claimed that they stole K600.
She adjourned the case until today so the owner could come to verify the claims.
