Man speared to death over a pig

Allan Aiso was convicted by the Bomana National Court for the murder of George Evi on May 5, 2015 at Aipeana village, Kairuku district. He stabbed Evi on his left chest using a spear knife.

The court found that Aiso threw a spear knife at Evi (deceased) after he found him standing next to his dead pig in the garden.

All these took place in front of the deceased’s uncle, Paul Auki, whose statement was used as evidence by the state in prosecuting Aiso.
