Teen jailed for life for murder of Chinese couple at Matafonua

    A teenager boy has been sentenced to life in prison for stabbing to death a Chinese couple in a bush allotment at Matafonua.

    Mr Feng Sheng Pei and wife Mrs Su Jie Wen were killed on Sunday 25 February 2018.

    Sitiveni ‘Esi Muli, 17, was found guilty of their murder before a jury of seven gave their verdicts on three counts at around 3:20pm today.

    The jury took about less than an hour to reach its verdicts and found Muli guilty of two counts of murder and one of armed robbery.

    The court previously heard how a disagreement over a payment led to the prisoner attacking Mr Feng before he attacked Mrs Su.

    The couple’s bodies were found with multiple stab wounds on their heads and necks at their vegetable plantation.

    The court was told that on March 2 at around 2pm a search warrant had been executed at the accused’s residence and drugs had been found.

    Police arrested the accused, his father and other members of his family and charged them with drug possession.

    Police also found at this location the deceased’s mobile phone and a number on it belonging to the Chinese couple.
