Mataika murder accused has two previous murder charges but acquitted

The man  who will appear in court because he was charged with the alleged killing of his older brother  had two previous murder charges in which he was acquitted on both cases.

Maka Latu was due to appear in court on May 25, 2016 on the murder of his brother Pita Latu.

In June 5, 2012 Maka was arrested and charged with the murder of a 44 year-old Chinese electrician who was found dead in an electronic shop in Kolofo’ou.

Maka was also charged and appeared in court in relation to the death of a person in Halaleva.

On both cases Maka was released by courts because they lacked enough evidence to prove his wrongdoing beyond reasonable doubt.

Maka has been convicted of other crimes  previously and he had been to jail on some of those cases.
