The Madina District Court has refused an application to grant bail Prince Charles Dedjoe, a businessman accused of allegedly beating his wife Lilian Dedjoe severely, resulting in her death.

Lawyer for the accused person Captain Nkrabea Effa Dartey (Rtd) argued in court that it had the capacity to admit the accused person to bail citing a judgement of the Supreme Court.

The prosecution opposed the application and prayed the court to refuse the bail application as they needed more time to continue their investigation.
