Woman beats 3-year old child to death for defecating
Suspect has been arraigned before court
Dansoman police have apprehended a 31-year for beating her lover’s daughter to death.
According to a police source, the suspect, Evelyn Oduro, fatally beat her boyfriend's three-year-old daughter, Emmanuella Maame Yaa Adjei, for defecating on herself. The incident happened on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
“The little girl defecated on herself and some of the faeces fell inside their room, the suspect then subjected her to beatings. In the process, the girl hit her head on a hard surface and passed on,” the police source said as carried in an article by theghanareport.
The suspected after realising that the girl was unconscious rushed her to the Dansoman Polyclinic, but little Emmanuella was pronounced dead on arrival.
“The body was then realised for deposit at the Children’s hospital” the source added.
But Evelyn Oduro in an attempt to conceal the crime tried to bury the girl without the consent of the toddler’s biological parents.
“Emmanuella’s parents are no more together. Her father before travelling to Dubai left her in the care of his new girlfriend, Evelyn and they both have been living together at Wiaboman for the past six months,” the source said.
After the toddler’s death, the Dansoman police were alerted of Evelyn’s insistence to get the body released to her.
She was arrested for questioning and arraigned before the Adjabeng Magistrate Court in Accra and remanded in police custody.
She will reappear on February 10.
