A 25-year-old man is alleged to have set his stepmother and her five month old baby on fire at Shai Hills in the Greater Accra region.

The baby has since died but the woman, Magdalene Adetor, is currently responding to treatment at the Tema General Hospital.

The suspect, whose name has been given only as Emmanuel, set fire to his step mother’s room around 1:00 am on Sunday while the victim and her five month old baby were asleep.

Emmanuel was said to have doused Madam Adetor and her baby in petrol before using a match stick to start the fire, 3news.com has gathered.
