The seven-part jury presiding the kidnapping and murder and murder of the four Takoradi young ladies has suggested capital punishment for the two Nigerian suspects.
The two suspects, Samuel Udeotuk Wills and John Oji, were charged for kidnapping and murder after the collections of Ruth Abakah, 19, Priscilla Blessing Bentum, 21, Ruth Love Quayson, 18 and Priscilla Koranchie, 15 were found in their loft following a very long time of a public quest for the people in question.
The two have been being investigated since 2019 over the four young ladies who disappeared in 2017.
The issue acquired public consideration as police and public safety wrestled with their whereabouts even after a suspect was captured.
DNA test was directed among the families to determine the bodies after they were found in the home of Samuel Wills in 2019.
Prior, the prosecution led by Chief State Attorney, Ms Patience Klinogo, had asked the jury to consider all the proof leveled against the charged people as they get ready to brief the court.
The prosecution, she said, had effectively demonstrated all the offenses against both blamed people past all sensible uncertainty and the solitary conceivable decision, for this situation, was liable on all the four-checks of connivance and each of the four counts of homicide as a detriment to both of the denounced people.
"I, subsequently, encourage you to restore a decision of blameworthy against both blamed people on each for the eight tallies after my Lord has summarized the case to you," Ms Klinogo said.
She said in the light of the proof illustrated, "we present that the two charged people consented to act together for this situation with one normal motivation behind submitting the offense of homicide through the methods for capturing the four young ladies and murdering them".
Ms Klinogo said the offense of homicide as set out in Section 47 of Act 29/60 expressed that, "an individual who deliberately causes the demise of someone else by an unlawful damage submits murder, except if the homicide is diminished to murder by reason of an extraordinary incitement, or some other matter of incomplete pardon, as referenced in Section 52".
