46year old mother of five, Juliana Korley received the shock of her life when she woke up one morning to the horrible death of her husband Mr. James Angmorteh Mensah at Pankrono Estate in Kumasi. She tells crimecheckghana amid tears, “I was asleep with my children when my husband came in from work. He decided to go into the outside corridor to warm his food. Coincidentally, some robbers were engaged in a robbery spree in our area. When they saw my husband, they thought he had seen them robbing others. One of them suddenly came with a machete to stab my husband to death”.
The mother of five who had to be comforted throughout her narration said, after the dastardly act, the armed robbers who have since been apprehended, returned a few days later to set her husband’s house ablaze. “I picked nothing after they set our house ablaze”.
