By Comfort M. Johnson (LINA)

The Monrovia City Court has incarcerated at the Monrovia Central Prison a thirty-two year-old man for allegedly killing his younger brother for ‘kiss-meat’ barbecue.

Defendant Francis Faijue, a resident of the Chicken Soup Factory Bassa Town community was on March 5 arrested by police for allegedly stabbing to death his younger brother, Christopher Faijue, for kiss-meat barbecue.

The defendant was on Thursday arraigned before court to answer to the charges levied against him.

The Police charge stated that in the evening of March 5, the defendant came from work and sat with his friend identified as Johnny at an entertainment center to drink liquor.

It said while he was drinking, his younger brother came to the entertainment center and he bought him a bottle of liquor.

The charge sheet indicated that after the victim got through drinking the liquor, his brother, the defendant bought for him, he mistakenly forgot about the ‘kiss-meat ‘ barbecue he bought for his mother, and decided to go back to the entertainment spot where the defendant was.

Unfortunately, he met the defendant along with his friend eating the ‘kiss meat’ barbecue. According to the charge sheet, he got angry and threw the bag he was carrying away.

The Police charge sheet further stated that after the brother threw the bag away, the defendant got angry, followed the victim at their mother’s place and threatened to take off his (victim’s) intestine.

According to the charge sheet, before their mother could intervene, the defendant took a chicken knife and stabbed the victim on his left side, leading to his death.

During police investigation, the defendant denied the allegation saying, “I did not stab my brother; I only pushed him out of my way and he fell on a scrap pile of zinc and sticks.

The defendant is currently behind bars awaiting court trial
