THE Ashanti Regional Police are hunting for a middle-aged farmer at Nyinahin who shot and killed his wife on suspicion of adultery.
According to the police, the suspect, Yaw Tawiah, ambushed the woman, identified as Abena Lucy, near a stream on a farm and shot her in cold blood.
He then fled through the bush and has since not been seen.
Family sources said the two got married about four years ago after the first marriage of the woman had broken down.
For some time, Tawiah had been accusing the woman of infidelity even though she had denied the allegation on countless occasions.
The sources said last Monday, as Lucy was going to the farm, Tawiah hid near a stream and immediately the woman got to the spot, he opened fire killing her instantly.
People who got to the scene raised alarm but all attempts to get the man have since proved futile.
The remains of the deceased have been deposited at the morgue while police investigations continue.
