An Accra High Court has sentenced 27-year-old auto-electrician to death for killing a former staff of Stanbic Bank, Rosemond Nyampong.
Abraham Oyoko Baah, who hails from Odumase Krobo in the Lower Manya Krobo of the Eastern Region, was arrested for strangling the 32-year-old woman at her apartment at Baatsona, off the Spintex Road in Accra.
He was sentenced to death after a seven-member jury unanimously found him guilty on two counts of murder.
Rosemond, until her death, worked at the Credit Department at the head office of Stanbic Bank in Accra.
On November 21, 2013, the decomposed body of Rosemond was found in the kitchen of her rented apartment after her family and colleagues had not seen her in public for several days.
The Sakumono District Police tracked and arrested Abraham at Odumase Krobo where he had transported the deceased’s Toyota Yaris saloon car.
The laptop, two mobile phones, television set and sound system of Rosemond were found in the room of Abraham, a few metres from the house of the deceased.
Investigations revealed that she was gagged with a piece of black cloth and hit in the eye by Abraham.
An autopsy report further revealed that the deceased was strangled outside the apartment and the body conveyed to the kitchen.
Abraham told the Tema Magistrate Court during the pre-trial that he pushed the deceased on the ground, gagged her and strangled her.
