Sulayman Ceesay, the suspected murderer of Adama Jatta, the woman who was found beheaded in the village of Jambur, was yesterday arraigned at the Brikama Magistrates' Court.

When the case was called, Magistrate E.A. Ahmadi told the court a plea could not take place at this material time as, according to him, the alleged crime was a capital offence and would therefore be transferred to the High Court.

Adama Jatta, who is said to be in her 50s, was reportedly beheaded on her way from a rice field, about a kilometer at the outskirts of the village.

Sulayman Ceesay is believed to be a Guinea-Bissau national.
