Police On The Hunt For A 40 Year Old Man For Allegedly Killing His Wife Kumasi

Several cases have been recorded in recent times of people killing their spouses. The same case has been recorded in Nyankyerenease in the Kumasi Metropolis. A 40 years old man named Maxwell has allegedly killed his 30 years old wife for supposedly committing adultery. The landlady of the house who was a witness, Ama Nyarko said that she heard someone shout he is killing me once, in the night. She got scared and woke her son up.

She woke her son up and they went towards the room the noise came from. Ama Nyarko narrates that their room has two doors, one leading to the veranda and the other to the main door. So she stood behind the door to the veranda and his son stood behind the main door. The lights in the room were all turned off so they could not see what was going on. As they stood there they saw the man rush out of the room and cleaning his blood-stained hands with his wife's nightwear.

Maxwell run past the landlady and his son and climbed the fence wall, leaving the house. The landlady said as the man was leaving, she was screaming his name and trying to find out what was going on but he did not mind them. They focused to find out what went on in the room. They opened the door to find Becky lying in a pool of blood. She was however still alive and was breathing slowly. They called on the other neighbours to help them.

They rushed Becky to the hospital in a car where she passed on. They went to report the case to the police station in the night. The Police followed them to the crime scene and others went in search of Maxwell but has not been found yet. The landlady pleaded with the government and the police to find Maxwell and bring him to justice, to reduce the number of spousal killings in the country.
