It was an emotional day at the Asokore Mampong District Court as police needed reinforcement to escort Inspector Ahmed Twumasi from the premises.
Inspector Twumasi has been charged with murder.
It was also revealed in court that the accused used a service pistol to commit the crime.
Asked by the judge whether he has anything to say, despite not allowing him to plead guilty or not, Inspector Twumasi said: “I have no intention to commit the crime; what happened is between me and God.”
He has been remanded into police custody to reappear on Tuesday, May 30.
