Residents of Obinim Okyena in the Shama Municipality of the Western Region have been thrown into a state of shock after they woke up to the news of the death of a couple.

A 46-year-old man, Kojo Nyame, is alleged to have murdered his 41-year-old wife, Aba Akyere, and later hanged himself.

Reports indicate the incident occurred at about 12 pm on Sunday after Mr Nyame went to the farm.

He is said to have called his wife, who moved out of the house a few months ago over a misunderstanding, to bring him food as he was working.

Madam Akyere sent the food to him but never returned home. Since it was getting late, a search was mounted to look for her.

One of the search parties found her lifeless body with a stab in the stomach on the farm. Her husband was nowhere to be found.

A search on the farm for Mr Nyame led to the discovery of his body hanging on a tree on Monday morning.

The assembly member for the area, Christian Nampa, who narrated the incident to Adom News, said the Police at Beposo have visited the scene and deposited the bodies at the Effia Nkwanta Government Hospital.

The couple left behind a 24-year-old son who is a student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and a three-year-old child.
