Late Regina Morove

Kange's case to go for trial

The Waigani Committal Court on Tuesday made a ruling it had sufficient evidence that this was a case of criminal negligence by Kange.

In light of the Court's ruling, he exercised his rights to remain silent in response to the court finding of sufficient evidence to commit his case for trial.

He is expected to appear in the National Court on April 24 for listing.

Kange is from Maia village, Pangia in the Southern Highlands Province.

Kange refused bail

Deputy Chief Justice Sir Gibbs Salika, in his ruling, refused the bail application sought by Felix Kange.

"A pistol is a dangerous weapon and people who are in possession must take precaution.

"I will exercise court’s discretion, and the interest of justice does not require that this court grant bail," Sir Gibbs said.

The judge said Kange's statement in the police brief facts shows 'carelessness' on his part when he pulled the trigger in a room with other people in it.

Justice in sight for Late Morove

Felix Kange, the husband of the Late Morove, was arrested and charged this morning for involuntary manslaughter (murder).

Kange is currently detained at the Waigani police cell and has been refused bail by police.

NCD police commander Sylvester Kalaut told Loop PNG that for now, Kange’s lawyers will have to apply for bail at the National Court.

The late Morove was shot in the back of the head with a gun on May 14 and died instantly.
