A man was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing a young girl and cooking her body parts, police in Ghana said.
Nankese police said that they have arrested 35-year-old Yaw Akoto, after being accused of killing 14-year-old Docia Aina Adufa.
Akoto was charged with one count of murder and one count of desecrating a corpse. He was booked into jail and denied bail.
According to the police investigation, the aunt of the girl sent her to get water for the home on Tuesday, but she never returned.
