The Apam District Police Command in the Central Region has arrested Isaac Kwesi Kyemenu Sarsah, the man who allegedly beat his wife to death.
The deceased, a 32-year-old female teacher known as Linda Amoah Lamptey, who teaches at Gomoa Ajumako D/A Primary School lost her life after she was allegedly beaten by her husband.
Citi News sources say the man, Isaac Kwesi Kyemenu Sarsah, tried to kill himself after the incident but was unsuccessful.
The body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Apam Catholic Hospital’s morgue for preservation and autopsy.
Isaac Kwesi Kyemenu Sarsah, who is also a teacher had been leaving with the deceased for about 15 years at Gomoa Ankamu.
He has been accused of physically abusing his wife in several instances.
This forced family members to at a point intervene by moving Linda from the home to settle at another location.
Isaac Kwesi Kyemenu Sarsah again allegedly visited the deceased teacher at her new home and strangled her to death for refusing to stay with him.
The regent of Gomoa Ankamu, Nana Yaw Ekow Kwansah, who is a brother of the deceased, said Isaac “had on several occasions threatened to kill her and that is what he has done.”
After the incident, he allegedly tried to commit suicide by drinking a poisonous substance but was later found by the youth of the town who took him to the hospital.
The suspect is currently under police guard at the St. Luke Catholic Hospital in Apam.
