Murder-accused, Melissa Joseph, made her second court appearance on Thursday, February 11, but the matter has been delayed due to incomplete files.
Melissa is accused of fatally stabbing Joseph Herman, 45, of Capitol Hill, Castries on December 31, 2015, who succumbed to his injuries the following day – New Year’s Day.
The woman’s attorney, Alberton Richelieu, told reporters that the court is awaiting evidence from the police and until such time, only then will they be able to proceed with the case.
The dead man and his girlfriend have accused Melissa of harassing and threatening to kill them.
The matter was before the courts for over 10 years. And despite she was issued with a restraining order, the accused allegedly continued troubling the couple, which eventually led to Joseph’s death.
