The police have arrested a 40-year-old man who allegedly beat his wife to death in  Dansoman, a suburb of Accra.

The incident happened after the man's wife, Beatrice Ama Osaah, ordered that the ceiling fan in their rented one bedroom apartment be switched off because she was feeling feverish.

The order angered her husband, Samson Kwabena Ohene, which resulted in a misunderstanding.

Mr Ohene allegedly physically abused her resulting in her death.

The two are not legally married but have been cohabitating for almost ten years, according to eyewitness accounts.

They are both traders with two children.

Mr Ohene, according to his neighbours, had regularly abused his wife at the least provocation.

The landlady, Regina Tetteh, said the deceased had informed her that if she died, her husband should be held responsible.

Ms Tetteh said, "It was Sunday, I was watching television in my room when a guy came to inform that one of my tenants was beating his wife when I opened the door, I saw him hitting her. 

"We opened the door, and she hugged me. She said he wanted to kill her. I asked them what happened, and she told she is not feeling too well so she was feeling feverish and ordered that the ceiling fan is put off.

"If you had seen her this morning, you would have seen the bruises and the swelling on her body.

"She started saying from yesterday that if she dies, the husband killed her.

"This dawn, she was saying her husband had killed her and was worried about who will take care of their two children," Ms Tetteh told Accra-based Joy FM.

The niece of the deceased, Mary Nti, told the Daily Guide newspaper that Ohene had always assaulted the woman.

According to her, she was called to put off the fan by her aunty because she was feeling cold.

Mary said immediately after she put off the fan, Mr Ohene beat her and when her aunty intervened, she was also attacked.

"Mr Ohene collected a plastic chair my aunty was holding and used it in beating her up," she said.

Osaah's condition deteriorated, and when we rushed her to the Dansoman Polyclinic for treatment, she was referred to the to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for proper medical care where she died at dawn that Wednesday on arrival.

The Accra Regional Police Command have said they are waiting for the autopsy report before they can go ahead with any further charge.
