He was charged with murder but his plea was not taken.
The court, presided over by Her Worship Cynthia Adjei Andy, adjourned the case to 31 August 2020.
The police say the case docket will be sent to the Attorney General for advice after investigations are done.
Superintendent Fii Ochil, the District Police Commander, told Class News’ regional correspondent Elisha Adarkwah, that the incident occurred on Friday, 7 August 2020, when the boy was struggling with his father over GHS70.
The father, Supt. Ochil said, had sent the son to buy him something and was demanding his change.
The suspect allegedly cut his father’s hand with a cutlass during the struggle. The victim bled to death.
The body of the deceased has since been deposited at the Eastland Mortuary at Adanse Adiembra awaiting autopsy.
