The Suhum District Police Commander DSP Yaaya confirmed the incident to Adom News and indicated that investigation is ongoing.
According to the landlord of the deceased Nana Kwadwo Dompreh, Mr Agyare had been quarrelling with his mother over his intentions to get married. According to the landlord, who is also a sub-chief at Suhum, the accused had been pressurizing his mother to find him a wife but she had refused because he was unemployed.
Shock gripped the household at Oforikrom, Monday morning after they woke up to find Madam Doris and the house help murdered in cold blood.
Mr Agyare is currently on the run.
