Man kills wife over missing eggs
A disagreement between a husband and his wife over some missing eggs led the man to kill the woman.

Ama Jejeba, 26, was allegedly beaten unconscious by her husband, Kojo Tawiah. She was pronounced dead on arrival at the Tarkwa Government Hospital.

The incident, which took place at Dompem in the Western Region last Wednesday, has thrown the township into a state of shock.

Police sources told the Daily Graphic that the suspect allegedly accused the wife of picking some eggs from his hencoop, an allegation the deceased denied.

The sources said the suspect started invoking curses on whoever might have collected the eggs.

They said that the woman then advised her husband to stop invoking curses as it was late in the night.

According to the sources, the suspect allegedly took offence and started assaulting his wife.

The police said some residents allegedly rushed to intervene after the woman allegedly hit her head on a drain.

The sources said the rescuers rushed her to the Tarkwa Government Hospital but she was pronounced dead on arrival.

The police said the body of the deceased had been deposited at the Tarkwa Hospital morgue while her husband, Tawiah, had been placed in custody as investigations continue.
