A 17-year-old boy has allegedly killed his mother over a missing memory card at Woratrem in the Amenfi Central District of the Western Region.
The accused, Emmanuel Gyan, last Monday, January 15, 2018 was alleged to have accused the mother of taking his memory card and subsequently confronted her on the missing item.
The deceased, 52-year old Faustina Agyeiwaa, denied any knowledge of the missing memory card but Emmanuel wouldn’t take the mother’s plea.
According to the Amenfi Central District Police Command, Isaac became furious over the matter and attacked the mother with a pestle, hitting her on the head several times.
Not satisfied with the beatings, Emmanuel removed firewood from a nearby fire, burned the mother with it until she succumbed to the injuries and died on the spot.
The accused later went into hiding but was subsequently arrested by some folks in the community and sent to the Manso Amenfi Police Station where he is currently in police custody.
The body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Bibiani District Mortuary awaiting autopsy.
