Woman to stand trial for stabbing another


A WOMAN has been committed to stand trial in the Waigani National Court for allegedly stabbing another woman several times using a kitchen knife.
Committal Court magistrate Cosmas Bidar found sufficient evidence against Pricilla Benny, 23, from Baiyer in Western Highlands.
The incident took place on Sept 16 last year at Jack Pidik Park, Five-Mile, where Benny allegedly stabbed Jennifer Livai.

Two days later, Livai was discharged from the hospital and filed a complaint at Boroko Police Station.
Benny was apprehended and questioned.

She was charged under unlawful wounding.
