Richard Appiah, a footballer accused of murdering two youngsters and storing their body parts in a refrigerator in Abesim, Bono Region, has been committed to the High Court.
Appiah, who is being arrested on a murder accusation, is scheduled to appear in Accra’s High Court on August 16, 2023.
After the Attorney General recommended that he be prosecuted with the murder of the two minors, Louis Agyeman and Stephen Sarpong, he was sentenced to life in prison.
Appiah is scheduled to appear in the High Court to answer the murder charge.
Appiah has been declared fit to stand trial after initially experiencing mental instability and receiving medical treatment.
The prosecution, lead by State Attorney Nana Ama Adinkra, stated that the State would summon six witnesses to establish its case.
It presented autopsy findings for the two children, partially burned garments and slippers for the minors, and photographs of them, among other things.
Mr. T.K. Dzimega, who is representing the accused pro bono, stated that the accused would summon two witnesses from Abesim.
Appiah is suspected of gruesomely killing and storing some of the victims’ body parts in a refrigerator at Abesim in 2021.
The Police, during investigations, retrieved some of the body parts and intestines from a farm.
The minors have since been buried.
