Over a dozen of Selawamit Negasi’s relatives appeared in court yesterday, most wearing white T-shirts bearing her photo and the words Your Spirit Will Forever Live On.

They appeared to hear the late 46-year-old woman’s husband, Tesfai Negasi, plea to charges connected to her murder.

He did not plea yesterday as scheduled to the charges — one count of second-degree murder and one count of offering an indignity to a body. Election and plea have been scheduled for Oct. 14.

The couple’s daughter, Ellen Negasi, politely declined to comment.
