Dzifa Seppey, a 28 year-old trader, was on Tuesday remanded into prison custody by a Tema Circuit Court for stabbing her sister.

The court heard that the two sisters, who live in the same house belonging to their late father at Ashaiman Official Town, have for some time now not been on talking terms.

Chief Inspector Matilda Tettey , prosecuting, told the court presided over by Charles Gyau Asiedu, that on March 25, around 7:30 in the morning, there was a quarrel between Dzifa and Emelia Seppey, 26, over a space on a veranda they both share.

They were both advised by a neighbour to stop and Dzifa went into her room only to emerge with a knife with which she stabbed her sister in the head.

Chief Inspector Tetteh told the court that after the act, Dzifa allegedly threatened to harm anyone who dared come near her, but Emelia managed to escape to the police station and reported the matter.

Dzifa was subsequently arrested.

Dzifa pleaded not guilty to the charge of causing harm and was remanded until April 29.
