Visually Impaired Man Who Killed His Wife Remanded In Prison Custody
A 71-year-old visually impaired man who allegedly killed his wife at Abepotia near Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region of Ghana has been remanded.
The Nkwakaw Magistrate Court presided over by Isaac Adjei remanded the accused person for two weeks to allow the police to conclude its investigations.
The accused, George Mudor, reportedly butchered his wife at dawn while she was sleeping and confessed to one of his daughters in the morning.
The victim, Grace, who is believed to be in her late sixties had asked her husband for a divorce.
The request did not go down well with Mudor, who snapped and committed the crime.
An eyewitness who discovered the body said that the victim had deep cuts on her neck and face.
After the discovery, he, together with the victim’s children reported the incident to the police.
Meanwhile, the Assembly Member of the area revealed that the couple had lived in harmony for years until recent disagreements changed the dynamics of their home.
He said the victim, who was fed up with taking care of her husband, was said to have considered divorce.
Some co-tenants who also spoke to journalists, however, believe it is a premeditated murder as the suspect had allegedly threatened his wife’s life on a number of occasions.
