A Koforidua Magistrate Court has remanded a 30-year-old security officer, Isaac Tetteh, in police custody for killing his biological parents at Tinkong.
Tetteh, who killed his parents with a bamboo stick for suspecting them to be the cause of his challenges in life, is expected to return to the court on December 17, 2018. His plea was not taken.
According to the prosecutor, the suspect is the first born of the decreased, Francis Tetteh and Rose Tetteh, who are in their late 50s.
The suspect works with WESTEC Security Company and was said to have threatened to kill the parents but was not taken seriously.
On December 9, around 16.30pm, the suspect attacked the mother with a bamboo stick but she was able to escape from the house when Doris Tetteh, a sister to the suspect, intervened.
The suspect then attacked his father who was around, by hitting his head with the stick and he collapsed instantly.
The father was rushed to the Koforidua Regional Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
The mother who had returned to their house was whacked at the entrance of the house by the suspect and she also died on the spot.
After committing the barbaric act, the suspect took to his heels but was pursued and arrested by some residents.
