A 36-YEAR-OLD woman accused of stealing a 41/2-year-old boy will appear in the District Court for trial next March. Lusia Bong, unemployed, appeared before Deputy Judge O'Donnell yesterday and confirmed she would enter a plea of not guilty. She was accused of having unlawfully taken away Chan Ho-ming between February 21 and 23 in Hongkong with intent to deprive Ho-ming's parents of the possession of the child. Crown counsel Llewellyn Mui said the prosecution was expected to call eight witnesses. Bail was extended at $600 until her trial on March 23 next year. The hearing has been set down for three days.
