Two arrests made in Kolofo’ou 2012 murder case

Police have arrested and charged two male suspects with murder in connection with the death of a 44 year-old Chinese male in Kolofo’ou on Friday 15 June 2012.

The deceased was found dead in his electronic workshop next to the South Pac Builders Supply at the One Way Road.

Police arrested a 28-year-old Tongan male this week  Monday 24 followed by the arrest of a 33-year-old Chinese man this morning. They both remanded in custody until March 11 according Deputy Police Commander ‘Unga Fa’ao.

In June 15, 2012 police called to the scene and found the man died in a bedroom at the back of his shop.

There were no major injuries found on his body at the time but an initial examination led police to suspect it was a homicide, a report said.

The Chinese man arrived in Nuku'alofa in 2009 and he has a wife and a 12 year old daughter in China, police said.
