According to the court papers, the two engaged in an argument that led them into a brawl.
Antony was overpowered and knocked off. He was rushed to Parirenyatwa Hospital where he later died on the fifth of December
The accused person was denied bail as the State argued that, he was a flight risk and was likely to tamper with evidence
“The accused person is likely to interfere with evidence or witnesses since they are his relatives and reside at the same address,” according to the court papers
