By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent
GBARNGA, August 8 (LINA) - The Bong County Police Detachment has charged a 19-year-old man with murder for allegedly killing his girlfriend Manwoe Kerkulah.
The Commander of the Crime Services Department, John Flomo, said Samuel Moore was charged over the weekend for killing Manwoe Kerkulah with a cutlass in Volomenee, Sanoyea District in Bong County.
Inspector Flomo told the Liberia News Agency Monday that during investigation, it was established that Moore killed 26-year-old Manwoe after an argument for reportedly refusing to account for L$7,000 she took from a local saving club in the area.
He explained that following the argument on Friday evening, July 5, Moore woke Manwoe up early Saturday and demanded an account of the money, but she told him that the money had been spent, prompting him to chop her with a cutlass on the back of her neck.
Meanwhile, Moore has been transferred to the Sanoyea Magisterial Court for prosecution.
