Police prosecutor Lamin Jammeh told the court in May that the trio conspired and caused the death of one Serigne Fall, a Senegalese national by knifing him to death at Westfield.

The trio, who appeared unrepresented, denied any wrong doing.

The presiding magistrate then transferred the matter to the Special Criminal Division of the High Court in Banjul as her court lacks jurisdiction to try a capital offence.

The trial magistrate also ordered that the accused persons be remanded in custody pending their re-appearance at the High Court.
