A 50-year-old teacher of Mahame Roman Catholic Junior Secondary School near Goaso in the Brong Ahafo Region who was flirting with a colleague teacher's wife has paid dearly for his misdeeds.
The teacher, Simon Kusenu, was allegedly having an affair with the woman, Akosua Abuaa, a 36-year-old farmer, who is the wife of a teacher on the same staff with the deceased. Abuaa has two children with her husband.
Briefing The Mirror at Goaso, Chief Superintendent of Police, Mr Kofi Asare, the Goaso Divisional Police Commander, said on August 1, 2006, the deceased who had been in a secret love affair with Abuaa for more than two years, met the woman at a wake keeping.
He said Kusenu sent her and a teacher friend, Obeng Kyeremeh, with whom he was moving about to a popular drinking spot in the town where he bought drinks for all of them to enjoy.
According to Chief Supt. Asare, after they had enjoyed themselves, Kusenu asked the woman to accompany him to his friends bedroom for sexual intercourse, which she agreed to.
He said on reaching the bedroom, the deceased's friend obtained leave of them and went out for them to enjoy themselves.
Mr Asare said that in the sexual act, Kusenu started panting, collapsed and died instantly.
He said sensing danger that she might be arrested and prosecuted by the police, Abuaa quickly left the room and went into hiding.
Chief Supt. Asare said some people who had a hint about the incident went to the teacher's bedroom to see things for themselves and later reported the matter to the police.
He said the police went to the scene and conveyed the body to the Goaso Government Hospital for an autopsy.
The district commander said the police then mounted an intensive search for Abuaa and managed to apprehend her in her hideout.
Meanwhile, the Goaso District Magistrate's Court presided over by Mr J. Q. Owusu, has remanded Abuaa in police custody until a later date while Kyeremeh in whose bedroom the sexual act took place, has been granted police inquiry bail pending further investigations.
