An Accra High Court has sentenced Kofi Seidu, a driver and a farm manager, who murdered and buried a British Missionary in an old farm at Nsawam in 2010, to death by hanging.

This was after a seven member jury unanimously returned a verdict of guilty on him in respect of the charge of murder.

However, on the charge of conspiracy to commit crime namely murder levelled against Seidu and Reverend Goodwill Padmore, an in- law of Reverend Sidney Barnes, the deceased, the jury unanimously returned a verdict of not guilty on them.

The Court, therefore, acquitted and discharged them on the charge of conspiracy.

Seidu who is to be hanged on the charge of murder, has 30 days to appeal against his conviction.
