She is accused of stabbing death, Tijan Bah, 23, who fathered her child. 

State prosecutors alleged that Mariama fought with Tijan around 2am and in the process stabbed him with a knife on the left side of his neck resulting in his demise. 

She pleaded not guilty.

The case will resume on 27 April 2015 for hearing of witnesses’ testimonies. 

Legal Aid Agency represents Ms Conteh. 

EDITOR’S NOTE: We profusely apologise for stating yesterday that this case would resume on 27 March 2015, instead of 27 April 2015. It was the printer’s devil.
