Will There Be Enough Evidence To Convict Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza?

Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza, the Malawian couple arrested after an engagement celebration, and who remain in jail, have until March 4 to show why the case against them should be dropped, as prosecutors yesterday wrapped up their argument. “A police detective, Justine Magreta, testified that the defendants, Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza, admitted to having had sex with each other. Their lawyer said the couple signed statements only after being beaten. The defense has until March 4 to argue why the charges should be dropped.” [NYT]
