38-year-old woman from Adumasa, a farming town in the Ashanti region, Ghana has been butchered by her husband on their cocoa farm.
The naked decomposing body of the victim, Ama Afriyie was found a day after the incident when they both failed to return from the farm.
The husband, Kwesi Poku is believed to have killed his wife and later killed himself a few meters from the crime scene.
It remains unclear the immediate motive for the act, but according to reports, the couple have had a series of bitter quarrels regarding sex and money and this is suspected to be the reason behind her murder.
According to reports, Ama Afriyie is the breadwinner of the family; trading in farm products while her suspected killer and husband of more than 15 years is unemployed and depends largely on his wife for his upkeep.
Their six orphaned children, five boys and a girl said they greatly miss their mother and it will never be the same with her out of the picture.
“Now we do not have anybody to correct us anymore, when mom was alive she will call all of us together and share food with us. Even when we are asleep, she will wake us up and give us food,” the children shared.
