A 38-year-old man, Kwame Krampah (also known as Awana), has confessed to the murder of his 20-year-old girlfriend, Judith Kpeglo.
The man, a plumber who resides in Kpone Bawaleshie, admitted to using a nylon rope to strangle her, engaging in sexual activity with her lifeless body, and subsequently concealing the deceased’s remains within the local vicinity through secretive burial.
Disturbing revelations came to light during the proceedings at the Kaneshie District Court on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, where Krampah is facing charges of murder. The prosecution unfolded a narrative to the court, detailing how, on July 11, 2023, the accused allegedly used a nylon rope to strangle Kpeglo after she had visited him in his room.
Chief Inspector Margaret Boadi told the court that Joyce Agbo, mother of the deceased, and the complainant in the matter had reported to the police on July 17, 2023, about her missing daughter. The police immediately swung into action, leading to the arrest of Kwame Krampah (Awana), the boyfriend of Judith Kpeglo, the deceased.
Upon interrogation, Krampah confessed to killing the young woman in the afternoon of July 11 and burying the body in a nearby bush on the night of the same day. He then led police officers to the grave. The body was exhumed with a court order and has since been deposited in the Police Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.
After hearing the prosecution, Ama Adomako Kwakye, the judge who presided over the case remanded Krampah in prison custody to reappear on September 5, 2023.
