The suspect

The Asokwa District Court has remanded into police custody a woman who allegedly killed her pregnant colleague at Aburaso in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the Ashanti region.

Twenty-nine –year-old Adwoa Pokuah allegedly stabled 22-year-old Akosua Ataa who was seven months pregnant, in a quarrel last week.

The accused, who looked dejected in court, will remain in cells until June 16, 2020, pending further investigations as requested by prosecutors.


Her lawyer, Yahya Seidu, wants the investigator to speed up his investigations, as madam Ataa’s body remains in the morgue at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

Meanwhile, the court has issued a warrant for the arrest of Belinda Awuku, wife of the man accused of shooting a 46-year-old woman to death in a hotel room in Kumasi.

The woman, who failed to appear in court on Thursday, had been remanded on two occasions by the court but subsequently moved to a High Court in Kumasi for bail.

Madam Awuku’s husband remains in prison custody over the incident which occurred late last year.
