The prosecutor, DSP Daniel Gadzo, pleaded with the court to give the investigation team ample time to conclude the investigations.

The court presided over by Her Worship Bernice Mensima Ackon thus remanded them into police custody.

The suspects are facing the law for the alleged murder of 25-year-old Georgina Aso Botchwey, who hails from Yeji in the Bono East Region.

The incident happened when the deceased, an applicant seeking admission into the Ankaful Psychiatric Nursing School, arrived in Cape Coast in the Central Region for a scheduled interview.

According to police, she was reported missing on September 10, 2022, two days after her arrival on September 8.

The accused persons after committing the crime, are said to have buried the deceased in an uncompleted story building belonging to the chief at Asikafo Ambantem, a suburb of Mankessim.

Subsequently, the body of the deceased was exhumed and deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.

But police intelligence led to the arrest of the accused persons at Anomabo in the Central Region.
