Man 36, Charged With ‘Manslaughter’

By R Joyclyn Wea

The Liberia National Police (LNP) has charged Hassan Kanneh, 36, years with crime of manslaughter for his (Kannah) alleged involvement in stabbing his fiancée, princess Dwalo to death in his bed room at the peace island community in Jacob town, Paynesville, after being castrated and stabbed on the right side of his rib.

This cause of action is in violations of chapter 14, sub chapter B and section 14.2 of the revised penal code of Liberia.

During police CSD investigation conducted, it was revealed that on April 6, 2018, about 2300hrs, while defendant Kannah and Dwalo were in defendant Kanneh bed room, a misunderstanding ensued between both of them over an extra love affairs, which may have provoked his lover princess Dwalo (victim) to cut off his penis; in so doing, defendant Kannah retaliated by stabbing her in the middle of her chest, something that resulted to Dwalo’s death.

When asked to respond to the allegation, defendant Kanneh could not confirm neither deny the incident, but said he could not remember what took place between them that night in his (defendant) bed room.

The investigation discovered defendant’s male organ (penis) on the bed when the first responding police officers arrived thereat and took same therefrom to the doctors at the John F. Kennedy’s hospital.

That the argument which led to defendant Hassan Kanneh and his lover conflict may have derived from the news of the returning of defendant Kanneh’s wife from Guinea, scheduled for Sunday, April 8, 2018, a day after the incident.

The police charged sheet further noted that during police interview with the defendant, he claimed that he could not actually record what transpired in the room between him and victim Dwalo.

“In view of the foregoing fact and circumstances, coupled with evidence adduced and witnesses’ testimonies, this investigation has resolved to charge defendant Hassan Kanneh with manslaughter in violations of chapter 14, sub chapter B and section 14.2 of the revised penal code of Liberia, pending court trail,” the charge sheet noted.
