A 40-year-old man is in the grips of the Anyaa District Police Command for allegedly murdering his wife over suspicion of extramarital affair.
The suspect, is suspected to have killed the wife, Adwoa Frimpongmaa with a machete early yesterday at their residence at Borkorborkor Israel in Ablekuma a suburb of Accra.
A co-tenant alerted the landlord after noticing blood stains at the doorway of Yaw Mensah.
The landlord, Barnabas Abban, then broke into the room and found Frimpongmaa in a pool of blood.
He told Joy News that he quickly arranged for a taxi to send the victim to the hospital while he went to lodge a complaint with the police but was later informed of the death of Frimpongmaa.
“So the CID [officer] went to the house and found the husband hiding in the bathroom,” before he was arrested, Abban told Joy News.
According to the landlord, the couple had recently been involved in persistent quarrels following suspicion of infidelity on the part of the deceased.
Co-tenants who broke into the room found a machete which Mensah allegedly used to commit the crime.
The deceased body has since been deposited at the morgue while Mensah is currently in police custody pending investigations into the case.
