Alleged ‘wife killer’ Prince Dedjoe denied bail again

Lawyers of suspect Prince Charles Dedjoe, the man who is alleged to have murdered his wife Lillian Dedjoe have been refused bail for the second time.

The court presided over by Madame Effua Tortimah ruled, it is not clothed with the jurisdiction to grant bail to the accused except the High Court.

Even though counsel for the suspect Lawyer Captain Nkrabea Effah Dateh disagreed, the court said it cannot grant the suspect who is on murder trial bail.

Prosecutor Sophia Adamuwaa while opposing the bail application said, the district court is not competent to deal with the bail application.

In Court on Monday, the suspect Charles Dedjoe was not in court for medical reasons.

Per a letter written to the court, the lawyer for the suspect said they have applied for bail at the High Court but the trial Judge had requested the records of proceedings.

Counsel for the suspect told the court that, the manner the case is being tried on social media is worrying in that, the suspect whose hands are tied cannot hold a press conference to state his side of the case.
