Philip’s plea was not taken and is to reappear on March 25, this year.
The Prosecution prayed the Court presided over by Mr Robert Addo to remand the suspect to enable the Police to undertake further investigations.
Kumah was alleged to have assaulted his girlfriend Elizabeth Yesutor Akpalu, resulting in her death later at the Ho Teaching Hospital.
Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Mr Alex Yeboah, Acting Ho Municipal Commander, told the Ghana News Agency that fresh findings in the death of the deceased did not agree with the initial facts of the matter.
He said there would be the need for an autopsy to validate the claims.
He said Police are speedily organising themselves to have the autopsy done early enough to determine the next line of action.
