A woman has confessed to the killing of her stepson at Abura in the Ashanti Region.
A 20-year old man called Albert was found dead under a tree with a rope tied to his neck. The tree, the residents claim is too weak for a man to hang himself made the family and friends of the late Albert to raise questions.
Weeks after his death, his stepmother confessed to the killing of the young man when he was about to being buried. According to the residents, she did not say where she killed the young man or how she killed him.
The police at Antoa came for the woman to assist them in their investigations.
Though it is not clear why the woman killed his stepson, some resident believes she killed him so that she can inherit her husband’s ‘properties’ as Albert was his father’s only child.
Also, even though the unnamed woman claims she killed Albert, some people are of the view that she should be taken to the hospital first as she may be having a psychological problem.
