Kim Jong Nam trial: Judge rules women’s lawyers must mount defense

Shah Alam, Malaysia (CNN)Two women charged with murdering Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, will remain in custody as their lawyers mount a defense against the prosecution’s claims.

Judge Azmi Ariffin ruled Thursday that the prosecution had presented enough evidence for the case against Siti Aisyah and Doan Thi Huong to move forward. Had the judge ruled in favor of the women, they could have been acquitted and freed.
Kim Jong Nam died in February last year after Aisyah and Doan allegedly wiped his face with VX nerve agent in Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur airport.
