47 Years Old Sierra Leonean Man in United Kingdom, Amidu Koroma Accused of Wife’s Murder And Arson Attack
A man has been charged with stabbing his wife to death and setting their home on fire, a court has heard.
Amidu Koroma, 47, is accused of murdering Mariam Kamara, 46, at a property in Railton Road, Brixton, south London, on 24 January. Firefighters found Ms. Kamara’s remains after putting out a blaze centered in the bedroom.
Mr. Koroma did not attend the hearing at the Old Bailey but was represented by his lawyers.
Ms. Kamara’s charred remains were found after firefighters were called to put out a blaze centered in the bedroom on January 24. A post-mortem examination found she had allegedly been stabbed eight times, with two fatal wounds to the neck and face. The absence of smoke in her lungs suggested she died before the fire started, it is claimed.
