According to Joyce, her mother started picking up quarrels with her when she(Joyce) became pregnant. Her reason being that, she's still schooling.

She further explains, when she was delivered of the baby,  her mother who was also nursing a baby asked her to give the grandchild to her for her to breastfeed her whilst she (Joyce) continued with her schooling.

In the early hours of Tuesday,  April 5, she couldn't find the whereabouts of the baby.

She asked her Mum but could not give any tangible explanation

The case was reported to the police leading to the arrest of the grandmother.

After interrogation,  she led the police to where the baby was buried and the body was exhumed

A relative of the suspect who gave her name as Akyere says she strongly suspects the grandmother to have committed the murder

The body has since been deposited at the Cape Coast Hospital for autopsy.
