The Bole District Magistrate Court has convicted Charity Bemah to a fine of ¢3,800 for inflicting blade wounds on her husband’s lover.
The accused is to pay a fine of ¢3,000 and a compensation of ¢800.00 to the victim or by default, shall serve 12 months imprisonment.
The case was later reported to the Banda-Nkwanta police and the suspect was arrested immediately.
The said victim was given a police medical form to visit a health facility for treatment.
In court, the 23-year-old pleaded guilty to her crime. According to Charity Bemah, she is not well taken care of by her husband due to the presence of his lover.
In his final judgment, the presiding judge, Edward Essel, urged the suspect to iron out such issues with her husband and not the women he goes after.
