An electrician is facing a charge of murder for allegedly striking his 68-year-old mother to death with a pestle at Sakumono near Tema.

The suspect, Evans Obuaba Laud, 24, was said to have committed the crime after his mother, Mamley Segbefia, had rebuked him for using narcotic substances and misbehaving in the house.

The body of the deceased has been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue awaiting autopsy.

Evans, after the act, was said to be behaving like a mentally retarded person before he was arrested by the police.

Alex K. Wowolo, Sakumono District Police Commander, told Daily Guide that Evans, on Sunday, October 14, 2012, was chided by the mother for his errant behavior.

At about 10:30pm on the day in question, while the deceased was fast asleep in her room, Evans allegedly, without any provocation, hit her on the neck with a pestle several times and killed her instantly.

The deceased bled profusely from the mouth and the nostrils, and some residents who heard about the incident rushed to the scene.

A certain Robert Owusu, a resident who was also rushing to the scene, chanced upon the suspect, who bit off the would-be spectator’s lower lips.

Robert was rushed to the Tema General Hospital before he was transferred to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra for intensive medical attention.

Evans was later arrested by some residents and sent to the Sakumono Police Station.
