KOTA KINABALU: A man stabbed his wife several times in a fit of rage during a quarrel at a construction site in Kepayan, near here.
The woman, a foreigner in her 50s, died soon after the incident at 10am yesterday.
OCPD Asst Comm Jauteh Dikun said police found several stab wounds on the deceased.
“We believe the victim managed to crawl away from the scene before she collapsed because there were blood trails from where she was believed to have been stabbed.”
The man, also in his 50s, surrendered to police who arrived at the crime scene half an hour later.
The victim’s body was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for a post-mortem.
