Then kills himself
A man believed to be in his late 20s on November 23 brutally killed his wife, Mercy Tiah, in Gbei Bonlah Town, Twah River District, Nimba County, for allegedly having extramarital affairs.
An eyewitness told this newspaper that the man, Freddy Loleh, shot his wife with a single barrel gun during the early hours, while the lady was sitting on a bench in front of their home.
The single barrel gun scattered her internal organs. She died before she could be taken to a nearby clinic.
Loleh left his Garplay home, not too far from Gbei Bonlah, near the Liberia-Ivory Coast border, and was staying with the woman where the incident took place.
“After he had killed the lady,” an eyewitness said, “he fled into the bush where he later took his own life.”
This has been the third time this year that a man has reportedly killed his spouse for suspected extra-marital affairs.
In May, a man killed his wife in Leesonnon Clan, and then later killed himself few meters away from where he had killed the woman.
Also in May, another man killed his girlfriend in Dulay Town, near the Liberia-Ivory Coast border, and an angry mob is believed to have beaten the man to death.
Meanwhile, family members of Mercy Tiah have laid her to rest, while the remains of her murderer was loaded in a bag and returned to his family in Garplay Town, an eyewitness said.
