A 40-year-old man, Yaw Mensah, has allegedly murdered his wife, Adwoa Frimpongmaa, in their rented apartment after he suspected her of having an extramarital affair.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com, a co-tenant alerted the landlord of the house after noticing blood stains at the doorway of the deceased.
The incident is reported to have taken place early on Thursday, September 6, 2018, at their rented apartment at Ablekuma, a suburb of Accra.
The landlord, Barnabas Abban, reportedly broke into the room and found Frimpongmaa laying in a pool of blood.
The landlord then quickly arranged for a taxi to send the lady to the hospital before heading to the police station to lodge a complaint.
Abban was later informed of the death of Frimpongmaa at the health facility.
In a bizarre twist to the situation, the police, upon receiving the report went to the premises to investigate the matter and reportedly found Yaw Mensah hiding in the bathroom.
He was arrested and taken to the police station to assist in investigation into the matter, the landlord told reporters.
According to the landlord, the couple had been involved in constant quarrels over suspicions by the husband that his wife was having an affair.
Preliminary investigations into the crime reveal that the co-tenants who broke into the room found the machete which Mensah allegedly used to commit the crime.
