MURDER IN PARIS: Woman Murders Sister's Husband

Paris -- A 21-year-old Ghanaian murdered her sister's husband in Paris on Sunday at 14:15.

According to the French Paper (le Parisien), Kwasi Boateng, 30, lived with his wife Theresa, a hair stylist, at Epinay- a suburb of Paris.

Akosua Serwaa, sister of Theresa, who lived with the family under the same roof, had a dispute with Kwesi over a telephone bill. Kwasi left the house to calm the situation after the dispute. He returned after a few minutes, but met Akosua still angry and thus the quarrel continued.

The 30-year-old wanted to fight his wife's sister. Akosua?s brother, who was in the house, tried to stop the fight, but could not prevent Akosua from stabbing his brother-in-law straight to the heart with a kitchen knife. First Aid could not save him.

Akosua fled the scene before the death, but on hearing the death submitted herself to the Police.

Theresa's own sister has murdered her husband. Theresa is a very calm and respectful lady, now a widow. May Paa Kwasi?s soul rest in Peace. (more details later)
