This remand will allow prosecutors to conduct further investigations into the case.
During the suspect’s appearance before the court on Monday, May 22, the prosecutors amended the initial charge from “causing harm” to “use of an offensive weapon to commit harm.”
Consequently, Isaac Newton Kumah, has been charged with murder and the use of offensive weapons to commit harm.
The case has been adjourned to June 12, 2023.
Meanwhile, the family of the deceased is appealing for support to take care of the two children of the deceased.
Father of the deceased, Michael Teye Narh, said “before her death, she was taking care of the kids, the husband neglected his responsibilities. Actually, she was the breadwinner of the family, she was taking care of her parents as well as her kids. Her death is a great loss to the family, we are appealing for support from the public to cater for the kids.”
Some angry family members of the deceased were seen raining curses and hurling insults at the accused.

The man also allegedly inflicted cutlass wounds on the stepfather of his late wife.
