Addido is reported to have stabbed his wife with a large kitchen knife in their bedroom while their one-year-old daughter slept in a cot next to them at night.

Ms Agyemang thus escaped through the living room window, waking neighbours with her screams but she never escaped the rage of  her jealous husband as he chased her down and stabbed her again in the street as she lay on the ground, leaving her with 15 separate stab wounds.
