An Accra magistrate court has thrown out a bail application by the six people including, three Americans who  have been charged for the murder of two African Americans at Akwamu in the Eastern region.

Five of the accused, Nana Appia-Nti III, a mechanic, Nana Obiri Yeboah, a farmer, Brenda Kareema Mohammed, a pensioner, Yazid Alazim Mohammed, a businessman and Mensah Kamaugogo Muata, a surgeon assistant were charged with conspiracy to commit crime to wit murder.

According to the court it had no jurisdiction to grant bail because it was not a trial court. It further advised the counsels for the accused to go to the high court to seek  the bail for the clients.

The suspects were arraigned before the Magistrate court on Tuesday, May 12, 2015.

Police in Akosombo mounted a search for the two after they were reported missing.

They intensified their search after they found a pool of blood and a blood-stained cudgel in their room.

The deceased persons, Mamlena Diop, 75, and Nzinga Jaana, 69, were found buried two days after the missing report was filed.

Meanwhile one of the suspects has confessed to have killed the two expats.

After the confession, Anokye Frimpong was said to have demonstrated to the police how he murdered the two sisters at Akwamufie before burying them few meters from their home.
