The police are charging the defendant, Yinka Martins, with two counts of conspiracy and murder.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt. Modupe Olaluwoye, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Feb. 13, at 11.30 p.m. at No. 6, Odunsi St., Bariga, Lagos.

She alleged that the deceased, Mrs Mojisola Idayat, who was a tenant to the defendant, had given the landlady’s son, who was ill, some food to eat so that he could take his medication.
