LIBERIA: Man, 24, Incarcerated On Charges Of Murder

untitledThe Monrovia City Court at the Temple of Justice has incarcerated a 24-year-old man at the Monrovia Central Prison for allegedly killing his girlfriend with a single barrel gun.

Defendant Peter Seabo, alias P-40, a resident of Wood Camp Community in Paynesville, was early this month arrested by the Liberia National Police (LNP) based upon a complaint filed by the victim’s parents.

They alleged that the victim, Jankai Sarlie, left her residence in Brewerville, Virginia to visit her uncle in the same community where she got killed.

Defendant Seabo was on Monday arraigned before the court to answer to the charge of murder levied against him.

The Police charge sheet revealed that on the same day (April 29, 2016) defendant Seabo was at a wake-keeping in Wood Camp with some of his workmates when he and the victim met.

The charge sheet said the victim went to the defendant’s house where she was to spend the night.

The Police charge sheet indicated that during the night a gun sound was heard in the house which awakened his landlord.

The charge sheet said t landlord went to the defendant’s room where he met the defendant with the victim lying in a pool of blood on his bedroom floor.

The Police charge sheet further stated that the defendant told his landlord that the lady came to visit him and mistakenly shot herself with his gun.

The charge sheet said the defendant put them under the impression that he was taking her to the hospital but dumped the body on the road.

According to the Police charge sheet, the body was discovered on the main rood in Wood Camp near the Assembly of God School on a footpath leading directly to the house of the defendant.

The charge sheet noted that after the crime scene investigator and external examination at the John Kennedy Memorial Hospital by doctors, the victim’s body was deposited at the Alfred N. Butler Funeral Home for preservation awaiting identification.

During police investigation, the defendant admitted committing the crime.

Defendant Seabo is currently awaiting court trial.
