Police at Elmina are investigating the circumstances that led Ernest

Annan, a 20-year-old father to kill his own son on Christmas day.

Ernest Annan is said to have strangled the son, a seven-month-old baby

to death, put him in a sack and was ready to dispose off the corpse.

Joy FM's Richard Kojo Nyarko reports the mother of the baby, Maame Esi

has been left distraught.

Narrating the circumstances under which the baby was killed, an uncle

of the deceased said the suspect who was sleeping in a room together

with the wife and child decided the room was too hot and needed some

fresh air.

He took the baby along with him and strangled him.

Maame Esi who was waiting anxiously for the return of her daughter

decided to step out only to see her husband carrying a sack.

Sensing something was amiss she shouted at her husband, asking the

whereabouts of her son.

Ernest Annan quickly dropped the sack and took to his heels. He was

chased by some residents.

It took the assistance of a taxi driver, for the suspect to be

arrested, Nyarko reported.

He has been handed over to the police who would then begin prosecution
