Man charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting his wife as she slept
Effort Dankwa aged 36, suspected of shooting and paralyzing his wife, Benita Dankwa aged 29, has been charged with attempted murder.
The suspect was arrested in 2016, the same year in which the incident occurred, after police investigations identified him as the prime suspect in an attack on his wife.
Benita was eight months pregnant when she was shot in the chest, in what she believed was an attempt by her husband to kill her.

She survived the attack, but was left paralyzed and incapable to pass urine or faecal matter the natural way.
YEN.com.gh understands that she had to give birth prematurely to save her herself and her baby.
Investigations suggested there was no break into her house the night of the attack and the only person she spent the night with was her husband.
Police have charged Effort with attempted murder, but a hearing scheduled for Tuesday, December 18, 2018, was postponed because the defendant’s lawyer failed to show up in court.
