Killer Manhean Landlord Caged by Amasaman District Court || On Wednesday, the Amasaman District Court held Adjei Boye, a 35-year-old landlord who allegedly killed his tenant, Kweku Abu, 38, in police custody and inflicted machete wounds on the wife of the deceased.
Boye convicted of murder had his plea held in court.
Prosecution appealed to the court for the accused to be put in lawful custody to allow the police to continue their investigations.
The court chaired by Ms Hatia Manu compelled the appeal of the prosecution and adjourned the matter until August 12.

Police say Abu ‘s wife also suffered machete wounds on her head when she tried to intervene during the act’s trigger.
