A 35-year-old woman has been remanded in prison custody by the Ejura District Court for allegedly killing her two sons at Yeboa Akosua, a farming community near Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Kyei Sarpong said the suspect was arrested on July 22, 2020 for allegedly killing her two sons.
This was after she left her matrimonial home a day earlier with the excuse of visiting her brother at a nearby village while her husband had gone to the Ejura market to sell his maize.
ASP Sarpong said she failed to return the same day; but, she was subsequently brought back by a neighbour to the husband’s house with the younger child who was already dead.
She could not tell the police the whereabouts of her other son.
The police, together with some members of the community, later embarked on a search for the second son and they found him at a farm about four miles away from their house half-buried.
