A MAN accused of stealing valuable properties from a residence and a church in Honiara will be standing trial in April.
The hearing date was fixed yesterday after prosecution tendered the pre-trial conference checklist to the court.
Chief Magistrate Emmanuel Kouhota fixed a five days trial commencing April 6.
Thirty-nine year-old Henry Teti of Temotu Province will be standing trial for one count of burglary and another of sacralage.
The burglary incident occurred between October 1, 2011 and November 2011, where he allegedly stole two chainsaws and a wheelbarrow from a Fox Wood residence in East Guadalcanal.
All the properties were not recovered except for one of the chainsaws.
In relation to the sacralage charge, Teti allegedly stole two generators, a video camera, a laptop, a welding machine and $600 cash from the Potters Christian Church at Point Cruz.
In this alleged burglary, only the two generators were recovered.
This alleged incident occurred on the night of January 24, last year.
Teti is further remanded in custody until March 12 for another interim mention date.
Ben Alasia of Public Solicitor’s Office is representing Teti while Police Prosecutor John Palmer appeared for the State.
