19-year-old man butchers his 26-year-old girlfriend with cutlass in Liberia over money
Bong County Police Detachment, Liberia has charged a 19-year-old man with murder for allegedly killing his girlfriend, Manwoe Kerkulah.
Speaking to journalists on Monday, August 6th, the Commander of the Crime Services Department, John Flomo, said Samuel Moore was charged over the weekend for killing Kerkulah with a cutlass in Volomenee, Sanoyea District in Bong County.
According to Inspector Flomo, during investigation, it was established that Moore killed 26-year-old Manwoe after an argument for reportedly refusing to account for L$7,000 she took from a local saving club in the area.
He explained that following the argument, Moore woke Manwoe up early Saturday and demanded an account of the money, but she told him that the money had been spent, prompting him to chop her with a cutlass on the back of her neck.
Meanwhile, Moore has been transferred to the Sanoyea Magisterial Court for prosecution.
