Mr Gan­iou ap­peared be­fore the court presided by Mag­is­trate Gabriella Vella. He works as a tile layer and cur­rently re­sides in Sliema. The ac­cused is also charged with the il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of a weapon.

41-year-old Caro­line Ma­gri was found dead in her bed on Fri­day at her apart­ment in Ta’ Giorni af­ter re­port­edly be­ing stabbed to death. The po­lice were called to the scene of the crime at around 5pm, and later con­firmed they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case as a homi­cide.

On Mon­day, the po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions had to stop as the ac­cused re­quires men­tal care.

Lawyer Gian­nella de Marco ap­peared for the ac­cused.

In­spec­tor Keith Ar­naud led the pros­e­cu­tion. He ex­plained that once dis­charged from hospi­tal, the po­lice ques­tion­ing re­sumed im­me­di­ately.
