Richard Jason Magiau Namaliu, from the East New Britain Province, was arrested by police on the evening of July 25. He was charged with murder.
It is alleged he was responsible for the death of the late former Miss South Pacific, who tragically passed away on Saturday, February 11.
The charge is one which bail will have to be sought from the National Court, as the District Court and police do not have the power to allow bail.
This newsroom confirmed with the Waigani National court that bail has been filed.
