Court orders State to serve bill of indictment on suspect in Prof. Benneh’s murder case

The Kaneshie District Court has ordered the State to serve a bill of indictment on the accused person in the murder trial of law professor, Yaw Benneh.

This is the document containing the offences brought against the accused person.

The State was today, Wednesday, May 19, 2021, expected to begin committal proceedings against Ebenezer Kwayisi, the sole suspect in the murder trial.

This could however not happen as the accused person had not been served with his indictment bill.

The first accused person in the murder trial, James Nana Womba passed on in October last year while in police custody shortly after falling into relapse from earlier treatment.

Earlier in September 2020, three other accused persons, Christian Pobee, Isaac Botchwey and Adam Mensah were however discharged after the State substituted charge sheets that did not incriminate them.

The late Mr. Womba was however indicted in the new charge sheet together with Apambuor Agyabadu Nkansah.

Mr. Nkansah had also suffered ill-health while in police custody.

Presiding Judge Ama Adomako Kwakye has thus adjourned the case to June 9, 2021, with the directive that the bill of indictment is served on the accused person.
