A court in Fiji has refused to grant bail to the man charged with murdering his partner and former journalist, Losana McGowan.
28-year-old Usaia Kilaiverata appeared before the High Court in Suva on Tuesday, where his request for bail was heard.
Fiji Live reports Kilaiverata's application stated that he was self-employed and was supporting his children in New Zealand, as well as looking after his grandmother.
The application was denied, with the judge saying he was a flight risk.
He was remanded in custody to appear again on the 5th of June.
