The woman who allegedly set her husband’s house ablaze, resulting in his death and that of two others, was yesterday arraigned before the Adjabeng District Court, charged with murder.
Distraught-looking Efua Badu, 33, was remanded in prison custody to reappear on February 17, 2014.
She was remanded by the court, presided over by Mr Isaac Addo, after the prosecution had prayed the court to remand her.
Her plea was not taken but she has nonetheless confessed to committing the offence.
The prosecution informed the court that investigations have been completed and for that reason, the docket on her case would be forwarded to the Attorney-General’s office for advice.
Members of the deceased’s family were in court to observe proceedings but Efua’s family members were absent.

Efua’s action resulted in the death of Peter Amos Asobayire, 35; his wife, Felicity Asobayire, 25, and their two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Sarah Asobayire, who were burnt beyond recognition.
Efua, popularly known as Saman Kwenim, allegedly set fire to a can of kerosene and threw it through the window of the uncompleted abode of the family at Dome CFC at about 2 a.m. on Monday.
Two other occupants of the building, Tanko Asobayire, 28, and Michael Amanguri, 25, however, escaped unhurt as they were said to be sleeping in another room in the building.

Badu, a local restaurant (‘Chop bar’) operator, was said to have been married to Asobayire for seven years, during which period they had two children — a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old girl.
According to the prosecution, the Asobayire lived at Adome- Tantra Hill before his death, whilst the accused lived at Spintex Road at Flower Pot.
He added that all efforts by Asobayire to move Badu to live with him in his two-bedroom house at Tantra Hill had proved futile, and this caused a lot of misunderstanding between the couple.
This development, he said, compelled Asobayire to go in for a second wife, Felicity Asobayire, who had a two- and-a-half-year-old child, Sarah Asobayire.He said Peter Asobayire arrived with his new wife, Felicity, and the daughter, Sarah, from Navrongo the very night and met their untimely death.
Furthermore, he said Peter Asobayire broke the news to Badu that he had to go in for a second wife.
He indicated that the accused person, who could not cope with the shocking revelation, moved from Spintex Road to Tantra Hill at midnight, set the two bedroom on fire and had the three persons burnt to death.
A report, he said, was made to the police and upon intelligence, the accused was arrested.
The prosecution indicated that a caution statement was taken from the accused and she admitted setting the house on fire.
