A man believed to be in his 40s known as Thomas Kontoh has committed suicide after reportedly murdering his wife known as Lydia Amponsah at Gbetsile, a community in Tema in the Greater Accra region.
The man who appeared to be having challenges with his wife separated from his wife some months back according to reports.
His wife reportedly relocated to an uncompleted building at Sodjerline suburb of Gbestile in the Kpone Katamanso district of Kpone with her three children while the man lived at No 8 near Aviation in the same district.
Early Tuesday morning, according to eyewitnesses the man visited the woman in the uncompleted room in the guise to give them money for their upkeep only to slaughter the woman on her sleeping bed.
Upon realizing that the atrocities committed had come to light, he then committed suicide with container cable.
The Police is yet to commence investigations into the incident.
