A 25-year-old lady has been murdered by her boyfriend in the Volta Region capital, Ho.
Harriet Kafui Ahiati was found lifeless in her room Tuesday morning.
The incident, according to reports, happened around midnight on Monday.
The boyfriend, a popular footballer known as Jay, was found with deep knife cuts in the throat and on the stomach.
It is believed he attempted suicide after allegedly murdering his girlfriend in a brawl.
According to the mother of the deceased, the couple has been dating for over six years, since the deceased was still at JHS 3.
She said the two were finally allowed to continue with their relationship after several failed attempts by both families to separate the young couple at the initial stages.
“The two have been there for more than six years. Initially, we didn’t agree to the relationship so we attempted separating them but the two wouldn’t yield and so we allowed them to move on. They have lived nicely, the young man would come here, eat and sleep here.”
“Up until last night, I didn’t know the two had any serious issues. I only got back from my trip to meet a crowd here in my home and my daughter dead in a pool of blood,” she added.
The body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Ho Teaching Hospital morgue by the police while the suspect battles for his life at the same facility.
