Teacher remanded for allegedly killing husband

jail killA teacher accused of murdering her husband at Aputuogya near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, has been sent back to police custody after she made her second appearance in court.

The plea of Adowa Oppong Pokuaa was not taken.

The Kuntanasi Magistrate Court, presided over by Mrs. Cynthia Blagogee, upheld the request by the prosecution to keep her in police custody to allow more time to complete investigations into the case.

The incident happened on June 30, 2016.

Pokuaa and the deceased, Justice Adu Bosompem, a tutor of the Kumasi Senior High School (SHS), had been married for some time and had three children.

There was reportedly a misunderstanding between the couple, and in the heat of the verbal exchanges, the accused reportedly picked a kitchen knife and threatened to take her own life.

The man attempted to disarm her to prevent her from carrying through the threat, and in the process, got stabbed in the ribs.

Bosompem was rushed to the Saint Michael’s Hospital in Pramso but was pronounced dead on arrival. Pokuaah would make her next appearance on Tuesday, August 2.
