Mother of the deceased, indicated that the two had been dating for over 6 years when the lady was still in JHS 3.
After several attempts by both families to stop the relationship proved futile, they were allowed to continue.
“The two have been there for more than six years. Initially, we didn’t agree to the relationship so we attempted separating them but the two wouldn’t yield and so we allowed them to move on. They have lived nicely, the young man would come here, eat and sleep here,” she said, according to a Kasapafmonline report.
“Up until last night, I didn’t know the two had any serious issues. I only got back from my trip to meet a crowd here in my home and my daughter dead in a pool of blood,” she added.
