A man is in the grip of the police for allegedly stabbing his wife to death in the presence of his children at Dansoman Shiabu in Accra.
The suspect, Prince Korley Commodore, 48, was married to his wife, Dorcas Anafi Commodore, 37, for nine years.
Their children, both girls, aged five and eight, were said to have been in the bedroom at the time of the incident, with one of them screaming and saying “daddy you are killing mummy” a number of times.
The police saw a kitchen knife suspected to have been used to stab the victim.
When contacted, the Dansoman Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Isaac Kwadwo Asante, confirmed the incident and said the Ghana Police Service national control room received information that a man had killed his wife in a house at Shiabu at about 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, October 27, 2019.
The Dansoman Police Patrol team, upon hearing the information, followed the signal and located the house.
At the house, the suspect had locked himself up in his room and would not open it despite the police requesting him to do so.
