Murder accused Rosalia Eliphas was finally granted bail after months of trying in the Katutura Magistrate’s Court.
However, her alleged accomplice, Johannes Sheetekela Werner, remains behind bars.
Eliphas (25) and Werner (31) are charged with one count each of murder and obstructing the course of justice.
It is alleged that on 24 April this year, the duo assaulted Taleni Hamukwaya Werner with the common interest of killing her.
The victim was married to accused Werner.
Court documents revealed that the accused parties allegedly hit their victim all over her body and head, before pushing her to the ground.
The deceased was afterwards taken to the Roman Catholic Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.
The duo was arrested and charged on 26 April for attempting to obstruct the course of justice by failing to report the true facts of the incident to the police, knowing that doing so would interfere with their investigations and prevent the collection of physical evidence.
Eliphas was released on bail of N$4000, with the proceedings set to continue on 20 July.
