It is further claimed that the suspect said he was hiding at Winneba where he had planned to take his own life. The tenant later reported the matter to the police.
When the police rushed to the scene, they found the victim dead with a deep cut on her forehead.
It is suspected that the killer had hit her with a heavy instrument.
The body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue for autopsy.
According to the Kasoa Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Mr Joseph Okloo Gyamera, preliminary investigations carried out by the police indicated that the suspect had been having confrontations with his wife for some time now.
He said the man was not happy that his, wife, who worked with a local eatery (“Chop bar”), stayed away from the house for longer periods, sometimes three days.
This led to suspicions by the husband who questioned his wife for her late arrivals when she returned home last Saturday from work.
