Cape Coast, March 10, GNA- A 19-year old pupil, who allegedly defiled and impregnated a 14-year old school mate, was on Thursday remanded in prison custody by the Cape Coast Circuit Court presided over by Mr Beresford Acquah.

Stephen Otoo, of the God's Way Junior Secondary School at Moree, near Cape Coast, pleaded not guilty and would re-appear on March 31. Chief Inspector Augustine Amonoo told the court that Otoo always took advantage of the absence of the victim's parents to abuse her. Consequently the girl became pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy who died the day after delivery.
