Fifty-three-year-old Kafui Kuevor has been arrested by the Kaneshie police for allegedly butchering his step sister.
The suspect, according to police reports, was arguing with his step sister, identified as Alwine Kuevor, over a house left to them by their deceased father at Kaneshie when the incident occurred.
Alwine sustained wounds on her legs, hands and back. She also had her forefinger chopped off.
She is currently at the intensive care unit of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital receiving treatment.
Confirming the incidence to DAILY GUIDE, ASP Effia Tengey, Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer, said the incident occurred on March 24, 2016 at Kaneshie.
She said the police received a report from the daughter of the victim that her mother had been butchered by her uncle.
The victim, before the report was lodged, was rushed to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for treatment.
While investigating the matter, it came to light that the two were fighting over a house left for them by the deceased father.
Before the demise of their father, both Kafui Kuevor and Alwine were living with their father.
But they started having a misunderstanding over the house after their father’s death.
On March 24, 2016 around 7:30 pm, the two engaged in a fight, according to the police officer.
In the course of the misunderstanding, Kafui allegedly rushed into his room and picked up a cutlass to butcher his sister.
Daughter of the victim, who went to the rescue of her mother, was also inflicted with cutlass wounds but she was treated and discharged at the same hospital.
Kafui is still in police custody while the matter is under investigation.
