A woman has been arrested for killing her husband for impregnating another woman.
The woman, Esi Arthur, 32, had reportedly threatened her husband with death before his eventual murder in their home in Ghana’s Central Region.
According to Ghanaweb, Esi hit her husband Francis Anthony, 44, with a 4-by-4 wood. He died instantly.
The deceased’s father Ebenezer Anthony Nyasor was reported as saying that the family took Ese’s threat lightly, despite being aware of it.
“We thought it was a joke until it came to reality. She hit my son’s head twice with the 4-by-4 wood,” said Nyasor.
The deceased brothers were said to be besieged the police station where the suspect is in their attempt at mob justice.
The suspect denied killing her husband.
The late Anthony’s corpse has been deposited at Winneba Special and Trauma Special Hospital for autopsy.
