A man has been arrested for allegedly killing his wife, Ama Osah, at Dansoman in Accra.
Reports say the man, Kwabena Hemeng, beat his wife after she switched off the fan in their single room apartment.
The 43-year-old Ama is said to have returned from work feeling feverish and had told her sister to put off the ceiling fan.
The decision is said to have angered Kwabena who hit her with objects, including a chair.
A battered Ama is said rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
The Dansoman police are investigating the incident.
