US-based Ghanaian couple BEAT 5-year-old son to death


A US-based Ghanaian couple has been sentenced to a 25-year jail term for second-degree murder after they assaulted 5-year-old son and died.

Valerie Owusu, and boyfriend, Emmanuel Addae, both 28 years old had been convicted in March of depraved indifference murder for the death of King Owusu.

The verdict was delivered on Wednesday, 1 May, 2024, in court, with the mum Valarie in tears.

Court Statement

Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney said;

‘The jury has spoken, but unfortunately, that will not bring back this young boy.’

The sentence comes nearly three years after the two brutally beat and left the boy for dead on Long Island.

According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office, Valerie Owusu and Emmanuel Addae beat the child with ‘at least four different instruments’ over three days in 2021.

Owusu Is Not the Biological Mother

The prosecutors added that neither Owusu, who is the biological mother of the victim nor Addae called 911 or provide medical care when his situation deteriorated.

They continued by saying they later sent the boy to a family member’s house.

The family member later returned home to find the boy dead.

‘This little boy was beaten and suffered for days at the hands of these defendants, one of whom was his own mother, until he, unfortunately, succumbed to his severe and extensive injuries.’
