The Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court yesterday granted bail to the United Kingdom (UK)-based pastor standing trial for allegedly murdering his British wife at a hotel in Koforidua.

The court set the bail condition at GH¢200,000 with one surety to be justified.

In addition, the accused, Pastor Eric Isaiah Adusah of the Global Light Revival Ministries Church in Tottenham in the UK, is to report to the police every Wednesday for the next one month.

Background

The body of Charmaine Speirs, wife of the accused, was found three days after her husband had checked out of the Royal Mac Dic Plaza Hotel, where they were lodging.

Charmaine and her husband had checked into the hotel on March 16, 2015, and were scheduled to check out on March 21, this year.

However, the husband checked out the next day, en route to Europe, with specific instructions to the staff of the hotel that his wife did not want to be disturbed and would, therefore, call the reception if she needed anything.

Between March 18 and 20, 2015, Charmaine neither called the reception nor came out of her room.

However, when the checkout time was due, the hotel workers found the door to the room locked and they decided to force it open, only to find the three-month pregnant woman dead. 

Autopsy report

An autopsy report from the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Charmaine revealed that she had died of an “overdose of opiate heroin.”
