Rex Kpanor in police custody

Man boasts of killing wife
“I am satisfied that she is dead and I don’t
regret killing her. Now the police can do whatever
they want to do with me….” These were the
purported words of a 32-year-old cleaner arrested
for allegedly killing his wife at Labadi, a suburb
of Accra.

Rex Kpanor, a cleaner at the Cardio Thoracic
Centre, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, was arrested
on May 14 at the Police Hospital after allegedly
butchering his wife to death.

The victim, Christiana Ohenewa Anim – a mother of
three – was purportedly killed following a
misunderstanding between her and the suspect.

Rex is currently in the custody of the Labadi
police assisting in investigation.

The body of the deceased has been deposited at the
Police Hospital morgue for preservation.

Narrating the incident to DAILY GUIDE, Chief
Superintendent Oduro Anning, La District Police
Commander, said on May 11, 2017, at about 12pm, a
woman rushed to the police station to report that
a man had butchered his wife in a house close to
her restaurant.

Police proceeded to the scene but were told the
victim had been rushed to the La General Hospital
for treatment.

He said when police followed up at the hospital,
they were told the victim had died and so the body
had been conveyed to the Police Hospital.

Rex Kpanor, who is the father of the three
children, was later identified as the person who
butchered the woman

The family of the deceased was asked to help
apprehend the suspect who had gone into hiding
after allegedly committing the act.

According to Chief Superintendent Oduro Anning, on
Sunday, May 14, a family member received a phone
call from the suspect and in the course of their
conversation, he asked how the wife was faring.

The family member allegedly told him that his wife
was on admission at the Police Hospital and so the
man proceeded to the hospital (with alleged
intention to finally kill the wife) when he was

At the police station, Rex, who reportedly claimed
he was not remorseful about what he had done, told
the police that he was satisfied that the wife was

Further information gathered by this paper
indicated that Rex had co-habited with the woman
for about 11 years and that their first born is
ten years old.

The couple was living at Sukura near Mamprobi when
a misunderstanding ensued between them.

Madam Christiana then relocated to live with a
family at Nima but her husband managed to trace
her to her new place.

This compelled the woman to further move to live
with an aunt at La, but the man reportedly kept
pestering her with calls.

On Thursday, May 11, Rex reportedly traced
Christiana to La and in the course of their
conversation, a fight ensued between them, which
eventually led to the alleged murder of the woman.
