A 28-year-old woman has allegedly stabbed her aunt to death at Nsoatre in the Sunyani West District of the Brong Ahafo Region during a quarrel between them over electricity bills.
The incident occurred on Thursday evening when the suspect, Abena Henewaa, 28, heaped insults on her aunt, Ama Yeboah, 38, a farmer, for her inability to pay electricity bills amounting to GH¢10.36 for the months of May and June 2012.
The electricity bills were for the room which the deceased, the suspect, as well as the suspect’s mother, shared.
Ama Yeboah, who could not stand the insults, approached the suspect to find out how much she was supposed to pay.
However, a scuffle ensued between them and Henewaa, who was then holding a sharp knife, stabbed her aunt in the chest, resulting in her death.
Ama Yeboah was first rushed to the Nsoatre Health Centre and was later referred to the Regional Hospital in Sunyani where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
The suspect has since fled and the police have mounted a search for her.
The Station Officer of the Nsoatre Police, Inspector R.K. Atanga, confirmed the story and said the police had mounted a search for the suspect.
