 A MAN accused of beheading his three-year-old stepbrother in Western Highlands last June will face a trial in the National Court.

The Committal Court in Mt Hagen ruled on Oct 30 that Bakri Petrus Kerua, of Kamaka village, in Tambul district, had a case to answer and committed him for trial. 

He faces a murder charge.

It is alleged that Kerua had used a bush knife to cut off the head of his step-brother at his Kamaka village. 

He later allegedly threw the head into a bush and displayed the body.
