A 64 year-old woman in Samoa has denied one count of murder relating to the death of her new born baby 44 years ago.

The police say the incident occurred on the 27 of February in 1970 at the village of Faleasi'u when the woman was 20 years-old.

Our correspondent says more details about the case will be known when the accused, who is on bail, stands trial next month.
